  • CANG C-130 MAFFS Video

    Here’s a blend of two video B-Roll segments from the California Air National Guard showing the preparation of he 146th Airlift Wing’s C-130s for use as firefighters, and then actual fire duty from the cockpit in July 2020. Look closely and you will see the lead plane put out a stream of smoke where the C-130 is supposed to drop. And listen to the sounds of the drop from the cockpit.     Video Credit: Fred Johnsen of AIRAILIMAGES

  • Intermediate Control Rod

    Hello there has been an issue regarding the material of intermediate Control Rod on Allison T56 A15 engine on C130 E models. Can someone guide me about the material from which these rods are made (is it non ferrous or stainless steel?) and what NDI Inspection is to be carried out on these rods (FPI or MPI)?

    The heat keeps the window flexible.   From what I understood, you keep heat on unless it's arcing to keep the window flexible and not shatter I'll read around my pubs and manuals and see if anything addresses a crack and what to do

    I would think if they are telling to turn it off to avoid cracking, then you would leave it off if it were cracked.  Can always submit a TAR/-107 for clear guidance.

"What do you mean?" "We

      A photographer, who was also a confirmed atheist, decided to go into the woods to get photos of the fall foliage. It was a beautiful day....fall colors, birds chirping, babbling brook, and a gentle breeze rustling the leaves. While snapping shots, the atheist heard a noise behind him, and whirled around to see a huge bear coming through the bushes. He dropped his camera and ran. And kept running....... and looking behind him, he

      For every problem, there is a neat, plain solution...and it is always wrong. For every vision, there is an equal and opposite revision. Four-wheel-drive just means getting stuck in more inaccessible places. Free advice costs nothing until you act upon it. Free time which unexpectedly becomes available will be wasted.
