SOME four or five years ago, the Wright Air Development Centre, Wright‐Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, began to receive an increasing number of complaints of corrosion of wheel bearings on both operational aircraft and aeroplanes which had been inactive for extended periods. Many instances of wheel bearing corrosion were also reported by the U.S. Navy, mostly on stored aircraft. The greases in question were those meeting Specification AN‐G‐15.
