Been there, done that, in the Bahamas. Avgas by the 5-gallon bucket. No smoking, please! :eek:

Sheesh that looks like a huge pain in the butt. Wonder how long it took them to put all the gas in there that they needed?

That video was only a minute and a half for 5 gallons, so lets say it takes 2 to fill the bucket, take it up, fill the tank and come down. Lets say he needed 1335 galles (3/4s of a tank for a AN-26). So 534 minutes or 8.9 hours.

I think Great Lakes is requiring their first officers to fuel this way now. Saves money.

And I thought this was bad once. Nearly1hr for a DA-40 using a large tea kettle and a piece of jacket (for a filter....) which slowed things down further.
