    Trim indicators

    It's been a long time since I worked on a C-130, but have some info on the trim tab indicators for an E Model. According to the TO 1C-130E-4 (an IPB I do believe), there were three trim indicators on the pilot's main instrument panel: Elevator Trim Tab, Figure 83 - Index 26, P/N 8DJ49GBV2 Aileron Trim Tab, Figure 83 - Index 27, P/N 8DJ49GAW2 Rudder Trim Tab, Figure 83 - Index 28, P/N 8DJ49GAY2 Hope this is some of the info you were looking to find.

    A practical man indeed!
  9. I just posted a picture of 62-1802 in my user gallery. This photo was taken at an open house display at Pease AFB New Hampshire in 1964 or 1965 while I was stationed there. The photo was scanned from an old picture of mine that my sister had in a family photo book. The full sized scan is about 1 Meg and I can e-mail it if anyone is interested.

    C-130 virtual tours

    Robert Thanks for the 360 degree tours of the cockpits site. Very interesting, did not know it was available. Lee

    I didn't know this!!!

    Ten miles as the crow flies. I found the arrow at the airport from an internet search and used a satellite map to confirm that it was still there. It was inside a fence around the terminal, so I went inside to inquire if it was OK to go outside the building to take a picture. The fellow I talked with was a pilot and told me about the second arrow as he has seen it from the air. The second arrow was a bonus and is the nicer of the two. I'll bet that not a lot of them are left around.

    I didn't know this!!!

    I found two of the concrete arrows in Indiana. One is at the Shelbyville Airport in Indiana and is at 39 degrees 34 minutes 36 seconds North and 085 degrees 47 minutes 58 seconds West. This arrow seems to be missing part of the tail. The other arrow is about 10 miles east-southeast of the airport arrow and appears to be complete. It is located in someone's front yard just off a country road at 39 degrees 32 minutes 25 seconds North and 085 degrees 39 minutes 31 seconds West. Both arrows show up on satellite maps at the coordinates above. Here is a picture of the front lawn arrow.[ATTACH=CONFIG]3650[/ATTACH]
