  • C-130 News: The US Air Force's MC-130 Seaplane is Finally in the Works

    Lockheed Martin's C-130J Super Hercules aircraft is not just the workhorse for the military but also a super achiever. In its career that has spanned over two decades, this aircraft has landed in the Arctic, on the highest airstrip, and even an aircraft carrier carrying out medevac, troop, and cargo transport. The US Air Force now plans to make it a seaplane as well, thereby making it possible for this mighty aircraft to land anywhere across the globe.  To ensure that the new version of the

    C-130 News: Air Force pilots test landing skills on Highway 287 during military exercise

    The United States military made history yesterday when it landed a C-130 aircraft on Highway 287 north of Rawlins during a joint training exercise. Moments after sunrise, the cargo plane burst through storm clouds to the east of the roadway at about 240 miles per hour. 500 feet off each wingtip was an A10. Known also as “flying guns,” A10’s are the Air Force’s primary low-altitude close support aircraft. Until yesterday, the Air Force had never landed a C130 on an American highway, although two

    C-130 News: 908th Airlift Wing remembers 9/11 with flyover

    Remembering the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, provides little cause to celebrate for the vast majority of United States citizens, including members of the Armed Forces.  Many face the day with somber reverence to the memory of all the victims and the heroes that sacrificed themselves that day (and for the 20 years since) so that others may live in peace and security. The significance is not lost on the Airmen of the 908th Airlift Wing, who, despite continuing to conduct tactical airlift

    APU pressure is low

    After adjustment of pneumatic thermostat at 620°C and RPM at 100%, we have a pressure at 21 psig max. (With 2 cc pack). The adjustment of air pressure regulator may be doing only with analyzer APU ? If the compressor was eroded, the pressure was under 22 psig for start engine like with 2 cc pack ? Do know if exist documentation on APU compressor liquid wash like engine (SP240) ? Thanks

    Prop wont restart in flight on FCF

    Had the same exact problem this week on a L-100 during a post inspection FCF.  Both inboard engines were overhauled zero time compressors and both would not restart immediately when TIT was below 200 degrees after cruise feather shutdown.  After tossing a bunch a parts and man hours at it I came across this post.  Tried the 15 minute wait time like Mike Fishers commented on and they both fired right up.  Thermal expansion at its finest!  Now to figure out what the heck the overhauls facility is

    APU pressure is low

    With cc pack on bleed air pressure should be around 35ps (32psi minimum), both packs should max out egt and pressure as low as 10psi, and unloaded should be above 38psi. Check air pressure regulator for 18.5 to 19.5psi   Assuming load control valve and thermostat have been replaced, you are probably looking at erroded compressor, and therefore apu change

    Where was "CRB"?

    Actually, CRB was the base designation used instead of full name on mission assignments, filing travel vouchers, etc. Each base or air port had a 3 letter designation. CRB = Cam Rhan, TSN = Ton Sun Nhut, ect.....

      A woman was having a passionate affair with an inspector from a pest-control company. One afternoon they were carrying on in the bedroom together when her husband arrived home unexpectedly.   "Quick," said the woman to her lover, "into the closet!" and she pushed him in the closet, stark naked.   The husband, however, became suspicious and after a search of the bedroom discovered the man in the closet. "Who are you?" he asked.

      I am trying to make friends outside of Facebook while applying the same principles.   Therefore, every day I walk down the street and tell passers-by what I have eaten, how I feel at the moment, what I have done the night before, what I will do later and with whom. I give them pictures of my family, my dog and of me gardening, taking things apart in the garage, watering the lawn, standing in front of landma
