      The tail code for the 776 TAS was DL. But they were at CCK then I believe. 776 moved to Clark later but don't know if tail code changed.

      Redneck Test
      By Sonny · Posted
      Two rednecks were given a special SAT test to meet their admission requirements to the Military Academy. Soon after the test began the first guy turns to the second guy and asks, "Old MacDonald had a what?" The other replies, "He had a farm." The first asks, "How do you spell it?" To which the second replied, "E-I-E-I-O."

      help pls. Does anyone remember if the PACAF  Herc's on Clark AFB had any "to letter" large white base designators ? I'm having oe of those shiny prinys done by "Casey" and I'd like the markings to be like the 776 TAS flew in 1972- end of unit. I have my favorite tail number, but what Large Letter markings were there, if any ? Thnx

      Agreed. If you are ops checking the system, the chances are you have a malfunction somewhere in the indication or fuel/TD systems, or you wouldn't be ops checking it. If the malfunction is in the fuel/TD system, the situation is at least stabilized in-flight with the appropriate procedure. When you start adding variables to a stable situation, such as enabling and disabling the system with various bleed air loads and throttle positions, you can make things much worse, such as a power surge/overtemp or an engine flameout, or any sudden power change in-between. On the ground, neither are dire events when the aircraft is safely parked.

      Thick tape....and the the back lights turned off.  Unfortunately, this is what we still have to live with since the AF didn't want their AMP.

      Herc outside Waco?

      http://www.l-3com.com/press-release/l-3-delivers-upgraded-c-130-aircraft-us-air-force-argentine-foreign-military-sales   Looks like L3 did a bunch of retro work on CG birds sold to the Argentine Air Force so perhaps one of the birds involved was used for parts and the fuselage was left over. If someone needs it I have the property owners name and address from the Waco tax registry.
