Have no idea of part number, etc, just know that what I always had was the standard green wood and canvas stretcher with the metal scissor-type spreaders............

My recollection also. I'm thinking it was the standard U.S. Army stretcher. Kept one on my aircraft.

Robertus, perhaps it would help it you talked to one of your army buddies.

Robert, you are the man. When I read Capt. Eko's initial post I thought this one is going to die on the vine. But no way, not on this web site. The ability of the active posters to come up with answers to obscure questions never ceases to amaze me.

Giz I remember having two on each plane used to use one of them on the long over water missions streached two 5000 straps across the center with one of them, that way I could scan and rest my eyes at the same time

Point of Contact

USAF School of Aerospace Medicine, 2947 Fifth Street, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio 45433-7212, DSN 798-2716 or 937-938-2716. www.wpafb.af.mil/afrl/711hpw/usafsam.asp

I know I'm chiming in a bit late, but the USAF School of Aerospace Medicine would be a great place to find what current equipment is being used and trained on for Air Evac. I did my training at Brooks many moons ago and I can tell you this place probably has the info you need and maybe more. Regards Keith

Any military hospital should have a room full of them, the newer ones may still have the FSN on them.

Off the topic, but where the heck have you been. I have sent several emails to ya and they bounced back undeliverable. Had me worried there, brother

gizzard,

Bet you can’t find a bifold type litter designed to support non-ambulatory patients of excess weight and extreme abdominal girth at your local army surplus.

http://www.narescue.com/OSL_OverSized_Litter-CNEAFC9BA5BD33.html?BC=AC69B6A6509E

PRICE: $939.99

I think my wife would fit on this!!!!!!!!!! We had to get a big stretcher for our ambulance, just too many back injuries trying to haul giant people around, the technical name was a bariatric cot, but we called it a Shamu cot, for obvious reasons....

I had one mounted right behind the 245 on every plane I crewed on. Slept on it when TDY a lot also.

Yep, that's where I remember them being. tied up with the center seat stanchions.........What I can't remember was if they were a checklist item????

Hi Giz, Sorry it took so long to respond. It has to do with, as you wrote, befuddlement. lol

I'm guessing you're correct. However, I didn't spend much if any time on aircraft other than my own, so I really can't say. Somewhat off subject, my favorite place to rest inflight was a hammock hung above the ramp and door.

When accompanying my aircraft cross country I tried to get as much sleep as possible while inflight. The reason being I never knew how long it would take to get the aircraft ready for next morning's departure. Sometimes', if the aircraft was in good shape I'd be in the Q in a couple of hours. Other times would still be there when you and the FE would show for the -1PR. Took more than one shower in the flight line fire station.

Those were the good old days.

Ya know guy's, I've been wracking my brain (no big deal!!!!) since this thread started and I cannot remember a stretcher being on any of the 464th/776th 1963 and 1964 E models from Pope. The only time I recall actually using one was when I helped with the KIA's we picked up for transport to the morgue. I'm reasonably sure that if there had been one as standard equipment I'd have known about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Did different wings have different equipment lists???? TW, you may be the best to answer this, when I was in basic survival at Fairchld, in december 70, one of the troops in my squad was an FE from Pope. He insisted that the POB birds had seat pack type survival kits in the racks, and that they were attached to the chutes before bailout. I told him that the 316th birds only had chutes and the racks held the survival suits. And I did not think our chutes could even accept the seat packs. Oh no he insisted the planes are all the same............Any thoughts????

Well, I certainly cannot speak with any authority, however, I find it hard to believe that every C-130 that rolled off the assembly line was equipped exactly as those before!
