Slide 29
On 7/8/18 David Elems finished work on the 917D. So to test it under load, we tacked the QRR 1100 onto the 4 GP's and used them to load test 917D. David pushed the cut of engines around the balloon and pulled them back to spot the 917D on the pan. Then Loren Ross, Bil Jackson, Ed Powell and Greg Elems put the 4 GP's on 4 rail and shut the 1100 down for the day. Here we see 917D starting to pull at the pedestrian crossing looking like she did on the San Jose Turn. - Greg Elems
