    C-130 News: 908th Proves Readiness for Wing’s Largest Deployment during Exercise Auburn Tide

    For more than a year now the 908th Airlift Wing has been faced with the task of figuring out how to protect its members and their families from COVID-19 while still being able to answer the nation’s call when it comes. One of the first things the wing commander, Col. Craig Drescher, said in readjusting the wing’s priorities was that, “we have to find a way to lean forward and still accomplish and preserve as much of the mission as possible.” In the last year, the wing has taken the commande

    C-130 News: 189th Airlift Wing selected as ANG C-130J training hub

    Recently, the 189th Airlift Wing’s 154th Training Squadron was selected by Air National Guard leaders, to be the official home of the Guard’s C-130J training program.

The C-130 has supported the Air National Guard mission for more than 50 years,

    What units and how many aircraft were modified with AWADS?

    I know this is old and you may not see it, but yes. I started wrapping F4 tape around my scribe, should have worn a leather glove to hold the scope.

    Vacuum tubes

    Anderson pretty much covered everything. Therer are still ARN6 ADF systems on some H models as far as I know, but I've been retired for 10 years. I probably repaired close to a thousand RT-289s in my career. Early on after training on them, I started replacing the TR and ATR tubes on every one, as well as the PFN if it looked the slightest bit swelled. Our MTBF went up quite a bit.

    • Man Overboard
      By Sonny · Posted
      An elderly couple were on a cruise and it was really stormy. They were standing on the back of the boat watching the storm, when a wave came up and washed the old man overboard. They searched for days and couldn't find him, so the captain sent the old woman back to shore with the promise that he would notify her as soon as they found something. Three weeks went by and finally the old woman got a fax from the boat. It read: 'Ma'am, sorry to inform you, we found your husband dead at the bottom of

"Oh, well Doc, not much, just a bit of wine with my meals, and a beer or two every once in a while." "Starting now, you drink only water. No exce

      Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her eighties and had never been married.   She was admired for her sweetness and kindness to all.   One afternoon the pastor came to call on her and she showed him into her quaint sitting room.   She invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea. As he sat facing her old Hammond organ, the young minister noticed a cute glass bowl sitting on top of it.
