TCTO 1C-130-1908

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I need information what TCTO 1C-130-1908 talking about and maybe does the TCTO refer to any Service Bulletin that Lockheed Martin issued?

Thank for your information....

Quoted from the TCTO:

"The purpose of this TCTO is to inspect the lower surface of the center wing for generalized fatigue cracking on aircraft with high Center Wing Equivalent Baseline Hours (EBH). Upon completion of these inspections, and any required repairs, the effected aircraft will be returned to service with flight restrictions removed for a minimum of 3500 EBH from the completion of the TCTO inspection. The final length of unrestricted service will vary depending on evaluation of inspection effectiveness and statistical analysis of initial inspection results. The length of unrestricted service shall not extend unrestricted service beyond the 45000 EBH threshold."

This is a depot level TCTO requiring over 2000 man hours to accomplish. This TCTO came about as a result of the findings from the fire fighting C130 that crashed in California.

I don't have any idea about any Lockheed bulletins.
