Hey Eng!

I write about being a flight engineer.

My name is Jim, I currently live in San Antonio Texas but would rather be on a sailboat in the Caribbean. Hey Eng! is short for “Hey Engineer!” A statement used to get the attention of the flight engineer on the C-130. Much of the time the phrase is used by the pilot flying the plane in a panicked or excited tone to alert the FE of a problem.

I blog about early enlisted flyers, military flight engineer history and being a veteran (with some issues as the result of deploying over a fifteen year period). WWII flyers typically wrote journals or letters to loved ones at home, I carried an HD video camera with me and hung it behind my seat in the cockpit of the C-130. The view was amazing!
