I remember  checklists....   Not a flyer, but,... I sometimes dream ...  “X has no dents, nicks, or gouges, scrapes, cuts or abrasions”. “Preformed packing is not swollen, stretched, pinched, torn or deteriorated, and IS well lubricated”

 Isn't that Arthur Kennedy explaining the process?

The wiki link on McCarthy says he did  a B-17 training film in WW 2.

 

edit:

 

The Wikipedia bio on Arthur Kennedy says he made training film also, and they DO look alike.  Still putting my money on McCarthy though.

Click the link in the bottom right corner of the video; it will take you to the video on YouTube.

 

Look below the image on YouTube; the OP identifies the narrator as Arthur Kennedy.  You are right; there are similarities between the two actors.  Listen to Kennedy's voice, and think back to Lawrence of Arabia.
