  • 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

  • TCAS Fail around 10000 Feet

    Had to do some reading. TCAS gets it's altitude input from the transponder (IFF) which in turn gets it from the pilot's encoding altimeter. At least on older models. Because it is happening at 10K, I'm going to assume it may be a bad altitude input (or lack of one) instead of the TCAS system. Disclaimer: It's been a few years!

    Support Equipment List

    My group has been asked to do some maintenance support work on a C-130J.  The problem is we're expected to bring our own equipment.  Does anyone have any idea how I can get hold of a Support Equipment List so I know what to go ask for?

      A herd of buffalo can move only as fast as the slowest buffalo. When the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first.   This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members.   In much the same way the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowe
