  • 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

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

    One day a man decided to retire. He booked himself on a Caribbean cruise and proceeded to have the time of his life, that is, until the ship sank. He soon found himself on an island with no other people, no supplies, nothing, only bananas and coconuts. After about four months, he is lying on the beach one day when the most gorgeous woman he has ever seen rows up to the shore. In disbelief, he asks, "Where did you come from? How did you get here?" She replies, "I rowed over from the other side of

    Sewart AFB 1966 through 1969

    Hey Ken I know of another person who you also know who probably forgot more about the C-130A=E-H-that started out as a CC at CCK then a FE with E-flight and that person would be Vinny Aquaviva! He trained me on the instrumentation Auto Pilot and Compass Systems when I was an ART at Willow Grove in the 913th then when I was Pro Super he was my Expediter on the flight Line. When they closed the Grove in 2007 I had already gone to Pope and joined the 440th out of Milwaukee until I retired in 2009.

    Sewart AFB 1966 through 1969

    Hi,  I knew two guys that came to Naha when I was there from 1967 to Mar 69 that both came from Sewart. I think at the same time. t least in 1968 sometime.  One was Gary Levesque from Washington & the other was John Eggers. I am not sure where he was from. John had re-enlisted and was on his second tour. Gary was my roommate and if you knew him, you wouldn't forget him. He was very outspoken and funny, and also sometimes annoying🥴.   He was engine run qualified, and also knew more about

      Women Drivers I tell you, women drivers are a hazard to traffic. Driving to work this morning on the freeway, I looked over to my left and there was a woman in a Mustang doing 65 miles per hour with her face up next to her rear view mirror putting on her eyeliner! I looked away for a couple seconds and when I looked back she was halfway over in my lane. It scared me so bad I dropped my electric shaver in my coffee, and it spilled all over my cell phone!
