On the subject of the flying boats, I read a novel a few years back that
took place on one of them. The author wrote that the engines were
servicable during flight and that one of the duties of the engineer was
to climb inside the wing to attend to the engines (for example, oiling).
Is this true? If so, can you imagine the combination of cold, heat, and
noise that the poor man would have had to endure!
