Multiplication tables on a pencil box................

Works like a simplified slide rule.

Does anybody know how to use a slide rule anymore?

This is what we used to figure the weight and balance of the C-130-E cargo planes.



They tried a digital computer that operated on the landing gear hydraulic pressure, but about 1 good short field landing would screw the computer all up.

We used the slip sticks even if the bird was equipped with a weight & Balance computer because the slip stick was always dead accurate.

Nope, probably not old enough. Gray and myself are old enough.
