  2. I wish I had a nickle for every strap I ever tightened down. I even got three or four surplus straps to tie equipment down on my trailer. I do put the equipment CG just slightly forward of the tandem axle center, but no, I do not make out a Form F every time I load the trailer.
  3. Me too! And they even fed us!
  4. Last week
  5. A pilot friend of mine told me the airplane was a Delta 757-300. They have overwing slides stored in compartments outside the pressurized fuselage that deploy for egress down the wing's trailing edge. Don R.
  6. Every airplane I've ever been on, as a passenger or crew member had the slides on the inside of the doors. An evacuation slide fell off a plane and landed in man's yard | CNN Travel
  7. Hello Hydraulic expertise AT 60 KN brake release during landing ,The operation checked o ground found normal with tester .Wiring of the system was checked satisfactory .Anti-skid control box replaced and sufficient hydraulic bleeding carried out but defected was repeated. Munir Abbasi
  8. Naminoue sounds better makes me think of my second home when back at Naha and not in country. Have you Ken or Sonny heard of or read Sam McGowans "Jacks Steakhouse" ? Of the books he has written finally us "maintenance pukes" getting some recognition !! I am sure 2 Crew/Chiefs as yourselves will identify with the characters involved. As a rebuttal I apologise for using the "Maintenance Pukes"
  9. It was Christmas and the judge was in a benevolent mood as he questioned the prisoner. "What are you charged with?" he asked. "Doing my Christmas shopping early," replied the defendant. "That's no offense," replied the judge. "How early were you doing this shopping?" "Before the store opened," countered the prisoner.

  11. Sonny, thanks. I found a place today that knows just what I want, and what they would cost each. Of course they haven't seen the booklet yet! The best part is there is no minimum order. I will let you know when I see them again. Probably next week. There is some funny but true things that I had forgotten about in that booklet. I remember now that I should have read the book before I ever went down town!😀 Bug me if you think I am dragging my feet! I do have a developing case of CRS. Ken
  12. Looks mean for sure, just wondering how long it would take to open the main radome or better yet, to change it.
  13. I am in urgent need for the c130h and c130j maintenance manual, structural repair manual and ipc. can anyone send it to me shortly? sam.johnson.pnpi@gmail.com
  14. Are the flaps being moved at higher airspeeds (IE: 220KIAS for 10%) or are they slowing to 180 and then moving the flaps to 50%?
  15. "Condition is only happening on a steep decent into a higher altitude airport." Are the flaps being moved at higher airspeeds (IE: 220KIAS for 10%) or are they slowing to 180 and then moving the flaps to 50%?
  16. What model (A,B,E,F,H,R,T,Q...) is the aircraft and which VVI is installed?
  17. One winter morning, an employee explained why he had shown up for work 50 minutes late: “It was so slippery out that for every step I took ahead, I slipped back two.” The boss eyed him suspiciously, “Oh, yeah? Then how did you ever get here?” “I finally gave up,” he said, “and started for home.”
  18. I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving!!
  19. Ken, Let me know the cost. I would be willing to pay part/all of the cost. Sonny
  20. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!
  21. Those of us living in Washington State call it "The Other Washington".
  22. I have to agree with Ken, Hope all you Herc guys a happy Thanksgiving and many more! November 1968 Chow Hall in Monsoon weather Naha Okinawa the first of what my calender was telling me 2 more to goafter this one. Little did I know the next year and a half would be spent in places like Ubon, Soc Trang, Bien How, Pleiku, Phu Cat ! Would do it all over again just to hang with all the magnificent Band Of Brothers I met along the way! Feb 68 -Mar 09!
  23. Hope all of you have a nice Thanksgiving Day. And many more! Ken
  24. I remember when that happened. By that time I was at CCK but I think I was on a CRB input when I heard about it. It brings back old memories doesn't it? Makes me remember the 40 missions I was on the year before at that same month, and not even worrying about one of those 37's or 57's ever hitting us. Almost nightly. Being young and dumb helped though.😀 That old bird lived a long time and flew a lot of miles/hours before that night though. Ken
  25. Sonny, I will see what can be done to make more copies. You know, it can be done, but the question is the minimum number of copies! And at what cost. Don't be afraid to remind me, I have a bad habit of thinking I can do anything----now! Have a nice Thanksgiving, Ken
  26. If you are from D.C. you'll understand these rules. If you are coming here, you'll learn these rules. If you are just going to visit, give up. Read, enjoy and then destroy them. 1) First, you must learn to call it by its rightful name. It is D.C., or "the District". Only tourists call it Washington. 2) Next, if your road map of Montgomery County in Maryland is more than a few weeks old, throw it out and buy a new one. It's obsolete. If in Loudoun or Fairfax County, Virginia and your map is one day old, it's already obsolete. 3) There is no such thing as a dangerous high-speed chase in D.C. It's just another chase, usually on the BW (Baltimore-Washington) Parkway. 4) All directions start with "The Beltway"...whic­h has no beginning and no end, just one continuous loop that locals believe is somehow clarified by an "inner" and 'outer loop' designation. This makes no sense to ANYONE outside the Beltway. 5) The morning rush hour is from 5 to 11 AM. The evening rush hour is from 1 to 8 PM. Friday's rush hour starts Thursday morning, especially during the summer on Route 50 eastbound. 6) If there is a ball game at the FedEx Field, there is no point in driving anywhere near PG County. 7) Tip: Never say PG County to anyone from Mitchellville, Upper Marlboro or Fort Washington. They'll blow a vessel in their neck and go into a seizure. If you actually stop at a yellow light, you will be rear-ended and shot at. If you run the red light, be sure to smile for the $100 picture you will receive courtesy of DMV. (However, if you don't go as soon as the light turns green, you will get cussed out in 382 languages, none of them English.) 9) Rain causes an immediate 50 point drop of IQ in drivers. Snow causes an immediate 100 point drop in IQ and a rush to the Giant for toilet paper and milk. 10) Construction on I-270 is a way of life and a permanent source of scorn and cynical entertainment. It's ironic that it's called an "Interstate" but runs only from Bethesda to Frederick. (Unless you consider Montgomery County another state, which some do). Opening in the '60s, it has been torn up and under reconstruction ever since. Also, it has a "Spur" section which is even more confusing. 11) All unexplained sights are explained by the phrase, "Oh, we're in Takoma Park or Greenbelt". 12) If someone actually has their turn signal on, they are by definition, a tourist. Car horns are actually "Road Rage" indicators. Heed the warning. 13) All old ladies in Buicks have the right of way in the area of Leisure World. 14) Many roads mysteriously change their names as you cross intersections. Don't ask why no one knows. 15) CENSORED 16) If you stop to ask directions in Southeast D.C... well, just don't. 17) A taxi ride across town will cost you $12.50. A taxi ride two blocks will cost you $16.75. (It's a zone thing, you wouldn't understand) (Oh, and if you are in DC and want to go to MD, don't tell them until you get in the car...they won't take you otherwise) 18) Traveling south out of DC on Interstate 395/95 is the most dangerous, scariest thing you will ever do and when you hit it, you will wonder why the section of this road called "the Mixing Bowl" is so named. After all, there is no mixing there, heck, there is no movement at all. 19) There is nothing more comforting than seven lanes of traffic cruising along at 85 mph, BUMPER TO BUMPER!!! 20) The minimum acceptable speed on the Beltway is 85. Anything less is considered downright sissy. 21) The Beltway is our daily version of a NASCAR reality show. Strap up and collect points as you go. 22) The open lane for passing on all Maryland interstates is the far right lane because no self-respecting­ Marylander would ever be caught driving in the "slow" lane. Unofficially, both shoulders are fair game also. 23) The far left lanes on all Maryland interstates are official "chat" lanes reserved for drivers who wish to talk on their cell phones. Note: All mini-vans have priority clearance to use the far left at whatever speed the driver feels most comfortable multi-tasking in. 24) If it's 10 degrees, it's Orioles' opening day. If it's 110 degrees, it's the Skins opening day. 25) If the humidity is 90+ and the temperature is 90+, then it's May, June, July, August and sometimes September
  27. I vaguely remember this. I sure wish I had a copy of one. Thanks, Ken!!
  28. Hi everyone, one of our herks have been giving VVI reading differences of up to 500 feet between pilot and copilot. The technicians have worked on it and one day the difference increases on pilot side , another the increase is on copilot side. Both indicators have been changed and the entire system flushed with nitrogen and still the problem persist, any help or advise. Thanks so much.
