        Tow Pilots; Lets keep our towplane clean.  I would like to ask all the tow pilots that, at the end of the day before the tow plane is pulled into the hanger that you grab a couple of volunteers to clean the bugs off the leading edge of the wings, cowl, struts, landing gear and tail. You will find plastic cleaner for the windsheild and soft rags in the lockers along the south side of the hanger.  It only takes a few minutes and, the bugs come off much easier when they are fresh.  I have filled a green bucket with soapy water and placed it near the hanger door.  If it is not there, look for it at the wash tub in the hanger.
        Thanks for your participation in this.

          Ok, bug free!
          on a side topic, should there be any (laminated) Tow Operation checklist ,
          or Emergency c.l., in the 182A’s cockpit?
