    Richard Stratton writes: The remaining two on their way home.  We left the Radar pods on these aircraft.  The only problem we had getting all three aircraft home is we had one engine that started running rough just before setting down for fuel and rest at Phoenix Arizona.  The problem was a cotter key had not been installed that secured the adjusting screw on the carburetor altitude aneroid by the overhaul facility.  This problem was discovered and corrected in about two hrs. and we were on our way with no other problems.
