      Seeking Checklists
      By MHeflin · Posted
      I'm trying to locate Pilot and/or Loadmaster Checklists (Amplified, or Abbreviated) for LAPES. Please check your attics, basements, garages, or the dusty archives of your computer for any electronic copies that you may have stashed away "just in case" you might ever need them again. Will pay photo copying/shipping costs for hard copies.  PM me if able to assist. Mark

      C-130 News: Officials confirm C-130 Hercules military plane went down near Savannah
      By jbob · Posted
      The white puff of smoke it appears to be something on the ground on the opposite side of the runway.   You can see something bright white prior to the plane rolling past that spot.    Also from this video, which I have watched numerous time could this be a no flap takeoff?

      This is another video that has been posted from a nearby Truck Lease company.   Video from 2 different camera angles.   In the 2nd video the perspective appears to show it in a pretty good side slip until it finally begins an apparent stall entry.

      I've heard reports they had called back to Ops there with an IFE and were returning.    Some of the guys from the Georgia unit know some things but are not saying anything online.

      Possible left wing eng trouble.   #1?

      Model differentiation
      By jbob · Posted
      This is the first time I had seen the designation of TC-130.    However looking at this aircraft history is used to be a C-130G which was the Navy TACAMO which was the EC-130G.   Sometime around May 90 it was converted again after extensive Depot where it became redesignated as a TC-130.    Looks to be an early E model(Navy R1?)   Originally a 64 model?

      A bear walks into a bar. He says, "I'll have a gin... ... ... ... and tonic." The bartender says, "Sure, but what about the big pause?" The bear says, "I was born with them."

      Aging with a Smile
      By Sonny · Posted
      Aging with a Smile:   Any woman can have the body of a 21-year-old, as long as she buys him a few drinks first.   My memory's not as sharp as it used to be. Also, my memory's not as sharp as it used to be.   Know how to prevent sagging? Just eat till the wrinkles fill out.   I've still got it, but nobody wants to see it.   I'm getting into swing dancing. Not on purpose. Some parts of my body are just prone to swinging.   It's scary when you start making the same noises as your coffeemaker.   I think I've reached my sexpiration date.   People our age can still enjoy an active, passionate sex life! Provided we get cable or that dish thing.   These days about half the stuff in my shopping cart says, "For fast relief."   I've tried to find a suitable exercise video for people my age, but they haven't made one called "Buns of Putty."   Don't let aging get you down. It's too hard to get back up.   Remember: You don't stop laughing because you grow old, You grow old because you stop laughing.

      Husband and Wife
      By Sonny · Posted
      A man and a woman are sleeping together when suddenly there is a noise in the house, and the woman rolls over and says, "It's my husband, you have to leave!" The man jumps out of bed, jumps through the window, crawls through the bushes, and out on the street when he realizes something. He goes back to the house and says to the woman, "Wait, I'm your husband!" She replies giving him a dirty look, "So why did you run?"
