SUMMARY. In this paper, we discuss Bennett's determination of optimal asymptotic weights for the BLUEs of the location and scale parameters based on general Type-II censored samples and then apply this method to the log-gamma distribution.

AMS (1990) subject classification. 62F10.

Key words and phrases. Log-gamma distribution, asymptotic best linear unbiased estimators (ABLUEs), type-II censored samples, life-test data.
