    Thanks for the response. Seems like 30 was the number I remember. I noticed on your profile that you like Guitars. I am a Guitar Player as well. I am part of an organization called Soldiers Song and Voices. We give free guitar and song writing lessons to Veterans. Six of us run the Chapter. We have 8 Vets in the program. We meet one Sunday a month and talk, write songs and jam. We furnish free guitars to the Student Vets. If you attend 8 lessons you get to keep the guitar. We have a mix of Vietnam and the desert wars and some in between. We play for different units at the VA hospital and Veterans events. Our first student is now our Vice President and has written several songs that we perform. Most of them have one thing in common...They have all ridden in a C-130..Some even jumped..

    Coulson Aviation distributed this photo today of their three C-130-type air tankers lined up at Reno for “USFS carding”. As we reported on April 10, they introduced their third tanker this month, another L-382G. They also have a C-130Q. The tanker numbers when used in the USA are 131, 132, and 133. At the end of this month the company will be conducting their annual pilot training.

And, on another subject, can you find the two air tankers in the photo below that was taken by the RAAF at the Avalon Air Show in Australia around March 4?

    They have a grid where they enter your readings from the test. It has to equal a certain number to be compensated. I just want to get something from my ringing. My ears been buzzing since I got blown out of the back of a C-130. They said since I didn't report it at the time they could not take that into consideration. I had several casualties and some that didn't make it. I wasn't bleeding and nothing broken. Did they expect me to wave down a medic and talk about my ears when the are trying to save the poor guys that were sitting where the blast came into the aircraft...It's in a appeal. Maybe some one with common sense will review it and make the right decision..

    Randie, if you go to the database page and look up the EC 130 Q that may help you out some. Tanker 131 is a former US Navy bird.

    I am passing this on to you because it definitely works and we could all use a little more calmness in our lives. By following simple advice heard on the Dr. Phil show, you too can find inner peace. Dr Phil proclaimed, "The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started and have never finished." So, I looked around my house to see all the things I started and hadn't finished, and before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Zinfandel, a bottle of Bailey's Irish Cream, a bottle of Kahlua, a package of Oreos, the remainder of my old Prozac prescription, the rest of the cheesecake, some Doritos, and a box of chocolates and the rest of my half-gallon of Blue Bell Original Vanilla Bean ice-cream. You have no idea how freaking good I feel right now. Please pass this on to those whom you think might be in need of inner peace.

    Thanks a lot for all responses… First of all, aircraft is on the air after replacement of both the Battery and the Bat. Relay. Flying crew upon receiving the two items elect to change both items ….. discounting our advice… for to replace the battery at first and then to check the operation of Relay). However I understand from “pjvr99” that a dead battery cannot be recharged regardless of the operation of the Relay .. Thanks “Munirabbasi” & “NATOPS1”, for clearing the main point that I was asking for (And I understand from you that: Relay cannot be energized through power coming from external, it requires a good charged battery to connect BAT Bus with Isolated Bus). “hehe” & “n1dp” our aircraft is equipped with only one battery (Lead Acid) and thanks for the ‘”get home tricks”… n1dp… the battery was newly charged …. and seems crew is like you … but they “Blame it on Rio” … that’s way both items been replaced…!!!

    I can't believe how good they working for me. They were replaced 7 weeks apart and I had no problems at all while going to rehab. About a year ago I decided that although they were doing good they could be better. I started walking 4 miles a day 5 days a week out on the country roads and through the hills. There are no flat roads around here. Anyway I don't think I have ever been in as good shape since I was in my 20's. One of these days I will post some pics of the Elk, Deer, & Antelope I see almost daily. Thanks for asking. I hope everything is good with you. Ken

    Thanks Sonny. I guess I need to get my butt in gear and start taking part in the forum again. I talk to Chris (tinwhistle) fairly often, and will tell him you wished him a happy birthday. He is doing okay. Thanks again Sonny, Ken

    Here are the pictures of the David Beesley that I knew well. I do remember he was married, and I see in my blanket order pic in my gallery he was on separate rats.. I remember him as being fairly stocky/muscular and had a great sense of humor. One night down in the "Dozen" he saved Wes Eckert from getting his outfit cut off by a guy selling "skibbe pictures" All Wes did was offer to show the guy his "crank"! Then he went around the rest of the evening saying "God bless David Beesley for he saved my crank" . I know this may be a family forum, but I know almost all of us guys had some very humorous moments away from home. Sometimes my wife will look at me thinking what the hell is wrong with you when one of those old 40+ year old memories pops into my head. The picture is one I drug out of my old slides of a violin Dave bought downtown and he was wearing his smoking jacket or whatever serenading some of guys in the barracks. (#336) by the way. Hope he is the same one we know. Dave, if you ever visit this forum, congratulations on your promotions.! Ken
