    • Laser pointed at US military cargo plane in Tokyo sparks local police probe
      Japanese police have opened an investigation after someone pointed a laser at two Yokota-based C-130J cargo aircraft Monday evening.

      The incidents occurred near Yokota Air Base in western Tokyo at around 6:30 p.m., a Fussa Police Department spokesman said Wednesday.

      A green laser targeted the Super Hercules from the ground somewhere in the Tokyo town of Mizuho, according to the Mainichi newspaper. It did not cause any damage or injuries and the aircraft did not change course.

      The incidents occurred during routine training missions and lasted less than 10 seconds, 374th Airlift Wing spokesman Senior Master Sgt. Greg Bluethmann wrote in an email to Stars and Stripes.

      Police are investigating the incident and may bring forcible obstruction of business charges, the police spokesman said.

      “Lasing incidents can be dangerous as they can impair the vision of pilots, potentially affecting their ability to fly the aircraft safely,” Bluethmann wrote. “We take these incidents seriously as the safety of both our aircrews and the community is a top priority.”

      The issue of lasers adversely effecting air travel in Japan is nothing new. The Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force reported 80 cases in which lights were beamed at Self-Defense Force and U.S. military aircraft between 2013 and December 2015.

      The last six months of 2015 saw five incidents where lasers targeted Marine Corps aircraft on Okinawa. A 56-year-old local man was arrested, charged and fined.

      In November 2016, a Kanagawa prefecture man was arrested for pointing a green laser at a low-flying Atsugi patrol plane.

      “There have been approximately 10 lasing incidents involving 374th Airlift Wing aircraft since July 2018,” Bluethmann wrote. “When a lasing incident occurs, the base reports the incident to local police and shares as much information as possible to aid their investigation.”

      Bluethmann added that Yokota leadership has been working with North Kanto Defense Bureau to “increase public awareness about how dangerous this activity can be for both aircrews and people on the ground.”

    • CAG report blames ‘inadequate training’ for 2014 Super Hercules crash that killed 5
      New Delhi: The Indian Air Force has found that one of the chief reasons why a brand new C-130 J Super Hercules aircraft crashed in 2014 and killed five crew members, including the pilots, was “inadequate training”, according to the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) report tabled in Parliament Wednesday.

      What’s shocking about this finding is that a simulator for this aircraft had been available since 2012, but was used for training only in 2016 because the IAF and manufacturer Lockheed Martin could not finalise a usage contract.

      Less than 10 minutes after the aircraft took off from Agra on 28 March 2014, it crashed 115 km west of Gwalior while on a routine training mission.

      Two wing commanders, two squadron leaders and another crew member were killed in the crash.

      The C-130J aircraft

      The Indian Air Force had first bought six C-130 J aircraft, meant for special operations, through the Foreign Military Sales (government-to-government) route in 2008 for $962.45 million.

      The IAF later went in for procurement of six additional aircraft through the same route.

      The aircraft is meant for special mission roles, and is fitted with an infrared detection set, enabling precision low-level flying.

      The aircraft can land on unpaved surfaces and requires a very short take-off and landing space. It has proved to be a huge asset for the Indian military.

      Simulator not used for 3.5 years

      The CAG noted that one C-130J-30 aircraft procured under initial contract met with a “CAT-I fatal flying accident” in March 2014.

      “Investigation concluded inadequate experience and training of the crew as one of reasons for the aircraft and recommended operationalization of Simulator for C-130 J30 at the earliest as one of the remedial measure (sic),” the report stated.

      The audit observed that the simulator was provided by the vendor, Lockheed Martin, “against contract of January 2009, on a user rate payment basis”.

      It noted that despite the installation of the simulator in December 2012, training could not be imparted for more than three-and-a-half years to pilots (December 2012 to November 2016) due to non-finalisation of usage contract.

      “The simulator was installed but could not be put to use due to non-finalisation of usage rate contract by IAF. Usage rate contract was signed (August 2016) and training on simulator actually commenced in November 2016,” the report said.

      The defence ministry accepted the delay in commissioning of training simulator, though it stated that inadequate training was not the primary reason for the accident.

      “However, (the) audit noted that the IAF investigation report had pointed out inadequate training as one of the reasons for the accident,” the report stated.

    • UK Hercules centre-wing box replacement effort gets under way for completion in 2027
      Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has begun work on the centre-wing box (CWB) replacement effort for 14 UK Royal Air Force (RAF) Lockheed Martin C-130J/C-130J-30 Hercules transport aircraft, which should be complete in 2027.

      The Ministry of Defence (MoD) told Jane's on 15 February that having awarded Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group the CWB contract in July 2017, a further "embodiment" contract to supply the CWB kits was awarded in 2018, paving the way for the commencement of work on the 14 aircraft.

      The RAF fields both the 'short-bodied' C-130J (designated C5 in RAF service) and 'long-bodied' C-130J-30 (C4) variants of the Hercules. As stated in the country's 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR), the RAF at that time planned to divest its 10 C-130Js while retaining its 14 C-130J-30s.

      However, in June 2018 Jane's reported that one of these C-130J-30s was abandoned in Iraq following heavy landing, leaving just 13 in the inventory. On 9 August 2018 an MoD spokesperson told Jane's that it is still the intention to field 14 Hercules, and while this would necessitate the retention of one C-130J the spokesperson noted that the exact composition of the fleet has yet to be determined.

      Despite the MoD declining to specify the planned composition of its Hercules fleet, a US Air Force solicitation for a CWB replacement effort for one C-130J and 13 C-130J-30 aircraft released at the same time as the MoD's comments to Jane's has been identified as being for the UK.

    • An Update on the Australian C-130J: Plan Jericho and Related Developments
      A range of upgrades and modifications have been fitted under Plan Jericho to Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) C-130J Hercules A97-448, providing the RAAF’s Air Mobility Group with a ‘Jericho Demonstrator’ to explore how it will provide air mobility as part of a Fifth-Generation Air Force.

      Upgrades include the installation of a Ka-Band Satellite Communications (SATCOM) antenna, external fuel tanks (taking total fuel capacity from 19 to 27 tons) to increase range/loiter and fuel offload; and other advancements to crew awareness and survivability.

      Air Mobility Group will use the Jericho Demonstrator in support of other Defence and Government agencies to determine how to increase the utility of its Hercules fleet in the future.

      In addition the RAAF is evaluating adding Litening AT pods to its C-130Js as well.

      According to an article by Andrew McLaughlin published on February 6, 2019 in Australian Defence Business Review:

      The RAAF is reportedly looking to integrate the Northrop Grumman AN/AAQ-28 Litening AT targeting and EO/IR pod with its fleet of 12 C-130J Hercules airlifters.

      With the retirement of the F/A-18A/B classic Hornet by 2022, the RAAF will have about 40 Litening AT pods in its inventory.

      The pods were acquired for the classic Hornet fleet in 2008 under the Project AIR 5376 Phase 2.4 element of the Hornet Upgrade Program (HUG) to replace the AN/AAS-38 NITEHawk pod….

      The addition of an EO/IR pod such as the Litening AT would enhance the C-130J’s ability to provide ISR overwatch for forces on the ground, to ensure a designated landing or extraction zone is clear of threats, to geolocate targets of interest or precision airdrop locations, or to even provide fires support to off-board shooters. For peacetime missions, a high-performance EO/IR pod could provide accurate imagery and data to support the HADR or search and rescue roles…..

    • Investigation: Corroded Propeller Blade Caused KC-130T Crash
      The Marine Corps determined that a corroded propeller blade that came off mid-flight was the cause of the July 10, 2017, crash of a KC-130T transport plane.

      That propeller did not go through proper maintenance the last time it was sent to an Air Force repair depot, which may have led to the damaged propeller remaining on the airplane that ultimately crashed and killed all 16 personnel onboard.

    • C-130 with rich heritage enhances training and readiness
      SHEPPARD AIR FORCE BASE, Texas – In late March 2018, an MC-130P Combat Shadow out of Moffett Federal Field, California, took its final flight to Sheppard AFB, where it would continue its legacy of supporting the Air Force as a maintenance trainer for Airmen in Training.

      This particular MC-130, which has been in combat in Vietnam, the Cold War and was even deployed to catch falling satellites, now serves as a part of the 82nd Training Wing’s Special Missions Aircraft Armament Apprentice Course and the C-130 Aerospace Maintenance Apprentice Course.

    • Dobbins flies tactical airlift training mission at Youngstown
      DOBBINS AIR RESERVE BASE, Ga. – Rays of sunshine pierce through the cargo bay windows of a C-130H3 Hercules. The monotonous rumble of the engines make the plane’s flight almost peaceful. Suddenly the aircraft goes into a hard left bank. The gravity inside the aircraft seems to triple as the g-force takes effect, pinning everyone to their seats.

      A large woman, wearing a sleeveless sun dress, walked into a bar in London. She raised her right arm, revealing a huge, hairy armpit as she pointed to all the people sitting at the bar and asked, What man here will buy a lady a drink? The bar went silent as the patrons tried to ignore her. But down at the end of the bar, an owly-eyed drunk slammed his hand down on the counter and bellowed, Give the ballerina a drink! The bartender poured the drink and the woman chugged it down. She turned to the patrons and again pointed around at all of them, revealing the same hairy armpit, and asked, What man here will buy a lady a drink? Once again, the same little drunk slapped his money down on the bar and said, Give the ballerina another drink!   The bartender approached the little drunk and said, I say, old chap, it's your business if you want to buy the lady a drink, but why do you keep calling her the ballerina? As far as I'm concerned, the drunk replied, any woman who can lift her leg that high has got to be a ballerina!
