      LM-100J Commercial Freighter Makes Successful First Flight
      By Metalbasher · Posted
      25 May, 2017, 17:43 ET MARIETTA, Ga., May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The first Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) LM-100J commercial freighter aircraft achieved a critical milestone with the completion of its first flight here today. "I was proud to fly the first flight of our LM-100J. It performed flawlessly, as is typical of our military C‑130J new production aircraft," said Wayne Roberts, chief test pilot for the LM-100J Program. "This new model will perform many commercial roles in the decades to come, like humanitarian service following natural disasters and others like nuclear accident response, oil spill containment, and firefighting. This aircraft will also enable remote area development such as mining and oil and gas exploration. This day marks the beginning of a tremendous commercial capability that only the LM-100J can deliver." Lockheed Martin’s LM-100J commercial freighter had a successful first flight, May 25, 2017. by Todd R. McQueen This first flight followed the same test flight route over North Georgia and Alabama that is used for all C-130J Super Hercules aircraft. The LM-100J will complete initial production flight tests and then begin Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certificate update flight test requirements. "This first flight is a source of pride for Lockheed Martin and serves as a proof-point to the ongoing versatility of the Super Hercules aircraft," said George Shultz, vice president and general manager, Air Mobility & Maritime Missions, and Marietta site general manager. "I'm continually impressed by the commitment to quality and relevance that our employees, industry partners and customers have invested into the LM-100J. Like its military counterpart, the LM‑100J is exceeding all expectations in terms of performance and capabilities." The LM-100J is the 17th different mission capability developed for the C-130J Super Hercules and it is an updated version of the L-100 cargo aircraft, which Lockheed Martin produced from 1964-1992. Lockheed Martin officials submitted a Program Notification Letter to the FAA on Jan. 21, 2014, for a type design update to this aircraft, a civil-certified variant of the C-130J Super Hercules to be marketed as the LM-100J. Through select design innovations, the LM-100J will perform as a commercial multi-purpose air freighter capable of rapid and efficient cargo transport. The LM-100J is an ideal airlift solution for delivering bulk and oversize cargo, particularly to austere locations worldwide. Like its military counterpart, the LM-100J will be able to support multiple missions, ranging from firefighting to medevac to VIP transport. The LM-100J incorporates technological developments and improvements over the existing L‑100s that result from years of C-130J operational experience, including more than 1.5 million fleetwide flight hours. The result of this experience and advancement translates to an aircraft that will deliver reliable service in a multi-role platform for decades to come.

      As You Slide Down the Banister of Life, Remember:

      1. Jim Baker and Jimmy Swaggert have written an impressive new book. It's called "Ministers Do More Than Lay People."

      2. Transvestite: A guy who likes to eat, drink and be Mary.

      3. The difference between the Pope and your boss...the Pope only expects you to kiss his ring.

      4. My mind works like lightning. One brilliant flash and it is gone.

      5. The only time the world beats a path to your door is if you're in the bathroom.

      6. I hate sex in the movies. Tried it once. The seat folded up, the drink spilled and that ice, well, it really chilled the mood.

      7. It used to be only death and taxes were inevitable. Now, of course, there's shipping and handling, too.

      8. A husband is someone who, after taking the trash out, gives the impression that he just cleaned the whole house.

      9. My next house will have no kitchen - just vending machines and a large trash can.

      10. A blonde said, "I was worried that my mechanic might try to rip me off. I was relieved when he told me all I needed was turn signal fluid."

      11. I'm so depressed. My doctor refused to write me a prescription for Viagra. He said it would be like putting a new flagpole on a condemned building.

      12. My neighbor was bit by a stray rabid dog. I went to see how he was and found him writing frantically on a piece of paper. I told him rabies could be treated, and he didn't have to worry about a Will. He said, "Will? What Will? I'm making a list of the people I want to bite."

      13. Definition of a teenager? God's punishment for enjoying sex.

      14. As you slide down the banister of life, may the splinters never point the wrong way.

      Synchro operation can appear normal, but still cause trouble, which is why I suggest running the sync tester. You mentioned that mechanical governing has no effect - does that mean the crew put the prop to mechanical before landing and it still pitch locked?

      Feline Physics Laws Panda Law of Cat Inertia
      A cat at rest will tend to remain at rest, unless acted upon by some outside force - such as the opening of cat food, or a nearby scurrying mouse. Law of Cat Motion
      A cat will move in a straight line, unless there is a really good reason to change direction. Law of Cat Magnetism
      All blue blazers and black sweaters attract cat hair in direct proportion to the darkness of the fabric. Law of Cat Thermodynamics
      Heat flows from a warmer to a cooler body, except in the case of a cat, in which case all heat flows to the cat. Law of Cat Stretching
      A cat will stretch to a distance proportional to the length of the nap just taken. Law of Cat Sleeping
      All cats must sleep with people whenever possible, in a position as uncomfortable for the people involved, and as comfortable as possible for the cat. Law of Cat Elongation
      A cat can make her body long enough to reach just about any counter top that has anything remotely interesting on it. Law of Cat Obstruction
      A cat must lay on the floor in such a position to obstruct the maximum amount of human foot traffic. Law of Cat Acceleration
      A cat will accelerate at a constant rate, until he gets good and ready to stop. Law of Dinner Table Attendance
      Cats must attend all meals when anything good is served. Law of Rug Configuration
      No rug may remain in its naturally flat state for very long. Law of Obedience Resistance
      A cat's resistance varies in proportion to a human's desire for her to do something. First Law of Energy Conservation
      Cats know that energy can neither be created nor destroyed and will, therefore, use as little energy as possible. Second Law of Energy Conservation
      Cats also know that energy can only be stored by a lot of napping. Law of Refrigerator Observation
      If a cat watches a refrigerator long enough, someone will come along and take out something good to eat. Law of Electric Blanket Attraction
      Turn on an electric blanket and a cat will jump into bed at the speed of light. Law of Random Comfort Seeking
      A cat will always seek, and usually take over, the most comfortable spot in any given room. Law of Bag/Box Occupancy
      All bags and boxes in a given room must contain a cat within the earliest possible nanosecond. Law of Cat Embarrassment
      A cat's irritation rises in direct proportion to her embarrassment times the amount of human laughter. Law of Milk Consumption
      A cat will drink his weight in milk, squared, just to show you he can. Law of Furniture Replacement
      A cat's desire to scratch furniture is directly proportional to the cost of the furniture. Law of Cat Landing
      A cat will always land in the softest place possible; often the mid- section of an unsuspecting, reclining human. Law of Fluid Displacement
      A cat immersed in milk will displace her own volume, minus the amount of milk consumed. Law of Cat Disinterest
      A cat's interest level will vary in inverse proportion to the amount of effort a human expends in trying to interest him. Law of Pill Rejection
      Any pill given to a cat has the potential energy to reach escape velocity. Law of Cat Composition
      A cat is composed of Matter + Anti-Matter + It Doesn't Matter.

      Sir hi I mean 3 propellers are changed we know that pich lock occurs 1. rpm over speed 103% 2. hydrualic fluid loss 3. Malfunctioning  of pitch lock assembly servo valve but there is no over speed indications hydraulic level are normal and as well as sychro phaser is concern mechanical gov has got no effect

      When you say "3 propeller assembly changed"  does that mean 3 different pump and valve housing? If so, you will want to run your sync tester - sounds like a synchrophaser or sync rack problem, or a wiring problem in main control conduit. Bearing in mind PITCHLOCK can only occur with low fluid level or overspeed conditions
