Pre-flight inspection and pre taxi check of a U.S. Navy T2J-1 Buckeye trainer aircraft. The plane captain near the plane. Pilot in cockpit. The pilot gives the thumbs up plug in signal for air impingement. The captain takes the hose and attaches it to the plane. He checks the starting unit and returns the thumbs up signal when ready. The pilot checks and adjusts the fuel shut off valve, engine master switch, engine start switch, tachometers, advance power control lever, and the oil pressure gauge. He gives the captain the unplug signal. The captain removes the hose. The pilot now performs the pre-taxi check: radio equipment, captain removes the 3 landing gear safety pins, flaps extended, speed brakes opened, take off trim, circuit breakers and the altometer. He then conducts the inverter check, operates controls to check freedom of movement, retracts flaps and speed brakes, and closes the canopy. He calls for taxi clearance, gives the captain the signal, adjusts friction on power and control lever. The captain gives clearance, the pilot releases brakes and taxis maintaining steady speed. He completes the take off checklist before getting onto the duty runway. Receives clearance, aligns the plane and taxis. He checks the exhaust gas temperature, rpm, fuel flow and oil pressure. Raises nose of the plane off ground, raises landing gear when airborne, raises flaps, levels off and accelerates.
