    88-1302?

    According to Lars' book, it was originally assigned to the West Virginia ANG. I never heard of it being haunted, but I've been out of the loop for quite a while, having retired in 1985. Don R.
  3. Does anyone know where it was originally stationed ,its mission and why it is haunted?
  4. Which version of autopilot?
  5. Sonny do you remember an instrument techat Naha by the name of Jim Ovary? He was at Willow Grove when I got there in 85. Then he moved on to General Electric last time I saw him was 2 years ago at our annual luncheon but sadly he passed away from A.O. related illness I gave him the Blind Bat hat I sent to you and he displayed it with his beret.
  6. Last week
  7. While the elevator is sitting on the stop it will bypass pressure (there is an internal bypass) this is discussed in Normal Procedures (engine starting pressures as low as 2550 with elevator on the stop) In you description is the deflection with both pumps on? With only one of the pumps on? With both pumps selected as the sole source of hyd power? With the elevator on the stop: Start #3 and see what the pressure is at LSGI and then HSGI move the elevator off the stop and see what the pressure does. Move the rudder and see what the deflection is turn off #3 pump. Start #4 and repeat. Let us know what you see
  8. We are currently battling a rudder boost deflection issue on the booster system when in full rudder booster (flaps extended to 50%). During operation of the rudder, pressure deflects down to 2750ish but does recover to 2900. Crew says it must stay in range the whole time. We have changed diverter valve, transmitter, gauge, check valve, and even swapped the snubbers to utility (that shows no deflection) and the problem does not follow. When elevator is pulled off the stops, the deflection only goes from 2900 to 2800 but crew still refuses the aircraft. The aircraft is an 88 H2 model. Thoughts anyone? Boost pack - rudder, elevator, anything else??? Thanks
  9. Hi Tinyclark, thank you for this information about these portholes. I think you have solved this "mystery". Thank you for your help. Laurent
  10. A man asked his wife what she'd like for her birthday. "I'd love to be six again," she replied. On the morning of her birthday, he got her up bright and early and off they went to a local theme park. What a day! He put her on every ride in the park: the Death Slide, the Screaming Loop, the Wall of Fear, everything there was! Wow! Five hours later she staggered out of the theme park, her head reeling and her stomach upside down. Right to a McDonald's they went, where her husband ordered her a Happy Meal with extra fries and a refreshing chocolate shake. Then it was off to a movie, the latest Star Wars epic, a hot dog, popcorn, soda, and M&Ms. What a fabulous adventure! Finally she wobbled home with her husband and collapsed into bed. He leaned over and lovingly asked, "Well, dear, what was it like being six again?" One eye opened. "You idiot, I meant my dress size." The moral of this story: Even when the man is listening, he's still gonna get it wrong.
  11. Earlier
  12. These were used as upper windows on the A model, see 21 & 22 in the pic out of the C-130A-4.
  13. I am 99.9% positive this control box is not a C-130 part. There have been many itterations of Terrain RADAR. This looks like it was used for landing, at least to me. Just becuase it has a WR sticker on it means nothing, except WRALC has been a dedicated RADAR repair facility since Christ was a corporal. If you are that interested, maybe hit the IBM home page and contact them about it. Someone may track it down for you. Good luck.
  14. You mean besides what is in the Tech orders?

    Ponderings

    Ponderings: The things that come to those that wait may be the things left by those who got there first. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat drinking beer all day. Flashlight: A case for holding dead batteries. Shin: A device for finding furniture in the dark. As long as there are tests, there will be prayer in public schools. When you're swimming in the creek, and an eel bites your cheek, that's a moray! A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well. It was recently discovered that research causes cancer in rats. The only cure for insomnia is to get more sleep. Everybody lies, but it doesn't matter since nobody listens. I wished the buck stopped here, as I could use a few. I started out with nothing, and I still have most of it. When you go into court you are putting yourself in the hands of 12 people that weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty. Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak. When sign makers go on strike, is anything written on their picket signs? When you open a new bag of cotton balls, is the top one meant to be thrown away? When your pet bird sees you reading the newspaper, does he wonder Why you're just sitting there, staring at carpeting? Where do forest rangers go to "get away from it all"? Why Isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?
  16. Dont forget about the 6 L100-30s and the 4 L382C/C130 of the Saudi Airforce.
  17. C130, tail number 403, has crashed at Goma, DRC. All on board ok. Still waiting for more info
  18.

  19. Did you ever get anywhere with this? I was TDY to Tan Sa Nuet for ten days for an engine change on a C-130 from Clark AB 463rd FMS IN 1969 and have no proof I was also TDY to CRB for 60 days to assist in the mailroom again from the 463rd FMS at Clark. Also in 69 or 70. It would have been between May 1969 and September 1970. My final review was denied as a result of Haas vs Peak Blue Water Navy Law Suit. Now they signed a bill into law that says BWN does not have to prove BOG go figure.
  20. Other than Lynden still owns them? You should see 4673 flying at N410LC sometime this year.
  21. hello everbody, I am new member here , I need c-130h illustrated fuel system with its parts
  22. The only explanation I can offer is the No 1 Blade is the reference blade based on the location of the pulse generator therefor it is a know location from which a measurement/ adjustment of relative position can be made during operation.
  23. Think About It: I had amnesia once - or twice. Protons have mass? I didn't even know they were Catholic. All I ask is a chance to prove that money can't make me happy. I'd give my right arm to be ambidextrous. If the world was a logical place, men would ride horses sidesaddle. What is a "free" gift? Aren't all gifts free? They told me I was gullible .. and I believed them. Teach a child to be polite and courteous in the home and, when he grows up, he'll never be able to edge his car onto a motorway. Two can live as cheaply as one, for half as long. Experience is the thing you have left when everything else is gone. What if there were no hypothetical questions? One nice thing about egotists: They don't talk about other people. When the only tool you own is a hammer, every problem begins to look like a nail. A flashlight is a carrying case for dead batteries. What was the greatest thing before sliced bread? I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure. The cost of living hasn't affected its popularity. How can there be self-help "groups"? Is there another word for synonym? Where do forest rangers go to "get away from it all"? Is it possible to be totally partial? Is Marx's tomb a communist plot? If swimming is so good for your figure, how do you explain whales? Show me a man with both feet firmly on the ground, and I'll show you a man who can't get his pants off. It's not an optical illusion. It just looks like one. Is it my imagination, or do buffalo wings taste like chicken?
  24. Engine will be cold at 1st start making harder for starter to turn engine. Also FCU will be cold making CIT and CIP bellows respond differently. 2nd and 3rd start components, gearbox etc. will still be warm and make spin-up easier. Adjusting TD amp will make little difference as it is only limiting the maximum fuel flow during startup. I see this regularly on both A15 and D22A engines. As long as start TIT is between 750 and 830 (780 to 810 desired) and start time is between 39 and 61 seconds (GTC/APU start), there is nothing to be concerned about.
