      Business one-liners 67 & 68:   If opportunity came disguised as temptation, one knock would be enough.   If people listened to themselves more often, they would talk less.   If reproducibility might be a problem, conduct the test only once.   If some people didn't tell you, you'd never know they'd been away on vacation.   If something is confidential, it will be left in the photocopy machine.   If something is done wrong often enough, it becomes right.   If 'success' consisted simply of not taking chances, then 'glory' would be at the disposal of the most mediocre talent.   If the assumptions are wrong, the conclusions are not likely to be very good.   If the code and the comments disagree, then both are probably wrong.   If the probability of success is not almost one, it is very near zero.   Business one-liners 68:   If the slightest probability for an unpleasant event to happen exists, the event will take place, preferably during a demonstration.   If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong.   If there isn't a law, there will be.   If there is a 50-50 chance that something can go wrong, then 9 times out of 10 it will.   If there is light at the end of the tunnel...order more tunnel.   If things were left to chance, they would be better.   If two wrongs don't make a right, try three.   If we learn by our mistakes, some of us are getting one great education!   If you aim for the stars but only make it to the moon, remember there are people who have not yet made it to the moon.   If you are already in a hole, there is no use to continue digging.

      There may have been maintenance personnel PCS for the fighters, helicopters, bird dogs, etc but not C-130.

      To the best of my knowledge there were no C-130 maintenance personnel PCS in Viet Nam from 1965 - 1966, I transferred out in Jan 1967.  As far as I know C-130 aircraft rotated into and out of Viet Nam with their maintenance personnel.

      New Face
      By Sonny · Posted
      A married couple was in a terrible accident where the woman's face was severely burned. The doctor told the husband that they couldn't graft any skin from her body because she was too skinny. So the husband offered to donate some of his own skin.

      However, the only skin on his body that the doctor felt was suitable would have to come from his buttocks. The husband and wife agreed that they would tell no one about where the skin came from, and requested that the doctor also honor their secret. After all, this was a very delicate matter.

      After the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded at the woman's new beauty. She looked more beautiful than she ever had before! All her friends and relatives just went on and on about her youthful beauty!

      One day, she was alone with her husband, and she was overcome with emotion at his sacrifice. She said, "Dear, I just want to thank you for everything you did for me. There is no way I could ever repay you."

      "My darling," he replied, "I get all the thanks I need every time I see your mother kiss you on the cheek."

      Well, I have watched the first 5 episodes of the series. The inflated body counts and the playing down of American KIAs and just dis information brings to light a few situations that come back to me. After flying and back on the roof of the Merlin Hotel we would sit around and talk about where we went and what we hauled. The dreaded KIAs would always come up i the conversations. The number we hauled would always be higher than what was reported on the network news. We were just one of three C-130 groups in country. Add in the "Boos" and Choppers and I see now that they were not reporting any where close to the true numbers of KIAs. I never saw the war as political. My war was tactical and my only interest was putting in the chocs after 16 hours of bouncing off dirt strips. Medicate, sleep a little then do it again the next day. Do that for 15 months then go home. That's what I did. Many of my friends came home and became activist. I just went to work and started a family. I survived mine and moved on. I feel so lucky to have made a good decision and Joined the USAF and been selected to be a Loadmaster

      ENG RPM

      This really needs more detail. Try to describe the malfunction in detail so we can get a mental picture of what's going on. Torque dropped for only 2 seconds. Which 2 seconds? At the beginning of the 5 seconds that RPM was low? At the end of it? If torque and RPM dropped together, it would indicate air as a likely cause. If Torque stayed high when RPM dropped, then that would indicate a propeller malfunction, and TIT happened to shoot up due to the SCV opening at 94%. If TIT shot up only after RPM dropped to 94%, that would further indicate the propeller as the cause. If TIT shot up before RPM dropped, then that would point to an air malfunction. How did the engine recover? Did you turn off bleed air, adjust the TD switch, or did it come back on it's own? Is there a history? How many hours are on the compressor? You're also missing fuel flow, which might help indicate a fuel or TD system malfunction. You might also include much TIT and Torque moved, as well as the pressure altitude and outside air temperature. A very slight TIT increase might indicate it was fuel related because once the SCV opens, the TIT should shoot up a lot. A large TIT increase should eliminate fuel system as the cause. A SCV malfunction is usually only good for about 5000 in-lbs of torque at power and around sea level, but I'm sure the power loss could get much more severe at high altitude or hot conditions and engine wear level. There's just too many variables for us to be truly helpful with the little information that was provided.

      I agree with pjvrr99.since TIT Increased it means air mass flow reduced due to bad SSV or mulfuction of anti icing sys.

      Finally, I'm a Vietnam Vet !

      The VA card is handy. The ringing in the ears thing amazes me. I am now in the appeals process. I submitted a packet detailing my job, noise exposure and a significant event with a tire explosion killing 3 of my PAX and blowing me off the ramp and still got denied. If you have any thoughts of Gov't Health care look no further than the VA to see why we don't want it.
