      LOL.  I usually use the pics from the articles, however I do change them from time to time to correct errors.  I'll look closer now that I know someone is watching.

      Taiwan C-130 Crash 1965
      By BRlang · Posted
      I was at CCK when the crash occurred. The loadmaster, Frank Wilson was a buddy and ran with our group. The plane hit a mountain in a remote area leaving TPE. I doubt you can get to the site. It was on a mountain side. Any one of us could have been on that crew but were not. We all had one thing in common. We loved to fly and would go anywhere at any time. All of us crew members were Brothers. Good luck to you in finding the location.

      Taiwan C-130 Crash 1965
      By Chuckos77 · Posted
      I know that the thread is quite old and may have been abandoned but the Crash of October 2, 1970 took the life of my wife's brother Daniel Kritzer who hopped on the plane at last minute. His death of course was tragic and my wife and I are planning on going to the site if possible this coming November. Does anyone have the exact coordinates of the crash? We would really like to stand on the hollowed ground or get as close as we can. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. The memorial to lost airmen in case anyone is interested is located in St. Louis at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. They were laid to rest together.

      Believe the airborn Herc in the background is a 193 SOW Commando Solo bird.   From what I can see of the Herc parked in the foreground it appears to be a standard bird belonging to the PA. ANG.

      The EC-130H Compass Call is a modified Hercules tasked with various types of signals surveillance, interdiction, and disruption. According to the U.S. Air Force official fact sheets, “the Compass Call system employs offensive counter-information and electronic attack (or EA) capabilities in support of U.S. and Coalition tactical air, surface, and special operations forces.” The EC-130H Compass Call is a modified Hercules tasked with various types of signals surveillance, interdiction, and disruption. According to the U.S. Air Force official fact sheets, “the Compass Call system employs offensive counter-information and electronic attack (or EA) capabilities in support of U.S. and Coalition tactical air, surface, and special operations forces.” The USAF EC-130H overall force is quite small, consisting of only 14 aircraft, based at Davis-Monthan AFB (DMAFB), in Tucson, Arizona and belonging to the 55th Electronic Combat Group (ECG) and its two squadrons: the 41st and 43rd Electronic Combat Squadrons (ECS). Also based at DMAFB and serving as the type training unit is the 42nd ECS that operates a lone TC-130H trainer along with some available EC-130Hs made available by the other front-line squadrons. The role of the Compass Call is to disrupt the enemy’s ability to command and control their forces by finding, prioritizing and targeting the enemy communications. This means that the aircraft is able to detect the signals emitted by the enemy’s communication and control gear and jam them so that the communication is denied. The original mission of the EC-130H was SEAD (Suppression of Enemy Air Defenses): the Compass Call were to jam the enemy’s IADS (Integrated Air Defense Systems) and to prevent interceptors from talking with the radar controllers on the ground (or aboard an Airborne Early Warning aircraft). Throughout the years, the role has evolved, making the aircraft a platform capable of targeting also the signals between UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) and their control stations. Although it’s not clear whether this ability has already been translated into an operational capability, in 2015, a USAF EC-130H Compass Call aircraft has also been involved in demos where it attacked networks from the air: a kind of in-flight hacking capability that could be particularly useful to conduct cyber warfare missions where the Electronic Attack aircraft injects malware by air-gapping closed networks. With about one-third of the fleet operating in support of Operation Inherent Resolve (indeed, four EC-130Hs, teaming up with the RC-135 Rivet Joint and other EA assets, are operating over Iraq and Syria to deny the Islamic State the ability to communicate), the fact that a single EC-130H (73-1590 “Axis 43”) was recently deployed from Davis Monthan AFB to Osan Air Base, South Korea, where it arrived via Yokota, on Jan. 4, 2018, it’s pretty intriguing.

      C-130 News: France's Armée de l'Air Welcomes First C-130J Super Hercules
      By Casey · Posted
      France's minister of the Armed Forces, officially welcomed the country's first C-130J Super Hercules aircraft to the Armée de l'Air's 62st Transport Wing with a ceremony at Orléans-Bricy Air Base today. Government officials from France and the United States also attended the ceremony, along with representatives from Lockheed Martin. France's minister of the Armed Forces, officially welcomed the country's first C-130J Super Hercules aircraft to the Armée de l'Air's 62st Transport Wing with a ceremony at Orléans-Bricy Air Base today. Government officials from France and the United States also attended the ceremony, along with representatives from Lockheed Martin. France will receive a total of four Super Hercules aircraft — two C-130J-30 combat delivery airlifters and two KC-130J aerial refuelers — through a Foreign Military Sale with the U.S. government, with deliveries taking place through 2019. The first of these aircraft (a C-130J-30 airlifter) was formally delivered to France in December 2017 at the Lockheed Martin facility in Marietta, Georgia, in the United States. France first acquired C-130Hs in 1987 and its new C-130Js will be operated with its existing Hercules fleet. "As a long-time Hercules operator, France has continuously demonstrated to the world the unmatched qualities and versatility found only in a C-130," said George Shultz, vice president and general manager, Air Mobility & Maritime Missions at Lockheed Martin. "France's new Super Hercules fleet delivers increased power, speed and capabilities to ensure that Armée de l'Air crews continue to meet — and exceed — mission requirements for decades to come." France is the 17th country to choose the C-130J for its airlift needs. The C-130J Super Hercules is the most advanced tactical airlifter in operation today, offering superior performance and enhanced capabilities with the range and versatility for every theater of operations and evolving requirements.   C-130J 61-PO c/n 5836

      Two Skeletons
      By Sonny · Posted
      A skeleton is walking down empty Main Street. Suddenly he sees another skeleton carrying a gravestone.
      "Hey, what are you doing?” The other skeleton answers "Just strolling". "What’s with the gravestone, buddy?",
      “I always carry my ID”.

      More Ponderings
      By Sonny · Posted
      More Ponderings:   What would a chair look like if your knees bent the other way.   If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to see it do the other trees make fun of it?   Why is a carrot more orange than an orange?   When two airplanes almost collide why do they call it a near miss?? It sounds like a near hit to me!!   Who's bigger? Mr. Bigger or Mr. Bigger's baby! Mr. Bigger's baby because he is a little bigger!   Do fish get cramps after eating?   Why are there 5 sylables in the word "monosylabic"?   If it's zero degrees outside today and it's supposed to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be?   Why do they call it the Department of Interior when they are in charge of everything outdoors?   Why do we go under over-passes and over under-passes?   What if C-A-T really spelled DOG?   How do "Keep off the grass" signs get where they are?   If the plural of "mouse" is "mice, shouldn't the plural of "house" be "hice"?   What happens to the holes when all the cheese has been eaten?   If you put orange juice in the freezer it becomes frozen, then why when you squeeze an orange doesn't it become squozen?   Why is there only one Monopolies commission?   Why do ballet dancers always dance on their toes? Wouldn't it be easier to just hire taller dancers?   Why do scientists call it research when looking for something new?

      Who says cops don't have a sense of humor?
      By Sonny · Posted
      Who says cops don't have a sense of humor? The following were taken off of actual police car videos around the country. "Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch out after you wear them awhile." "Take your hands off the car, and I'll make your birth certificate a worthless document." "If you run, you'll only go to jail tired." "Can you run faster than 1,200 feet per second? In case you didn't know, that is the average speed of a 9 mm bullet fired from my gun." "So you don't know how fast you were going. I guess that means I can write anything I want on the ticket, huh?" "Yes, Sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh ... did I mention that I am the shift supervisor?" "Warning! You want a warning? O.K., I'm warning you not to do that again or I'll give you another ticket." "The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?" "Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy, and step in monkey poop." "Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven." "In God we trust, all others we run through NCIC." "Just how big were those two beers?" "No sir we don't have quotas anymore. We used to have quotas but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we want." "I'm glad to hear the Chief of Police is a good personal friend of yours. At least you know someone who can post your bail." "You didn't think we give pretty women tickets? You're right, we don't. Sign here."
