  • 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

    C-130 News: A New Era Takes Flight

    A rainy June 2, 2020, was a historic day for the 39th Rescue Squadron as aircrew members flew the first fully operational HC-130J Combat King II training mission.   This first operational flight marks an important milestone for the 39th RQS because the HC-130J replaced the HC-130 P/N as the only Air Force dedicated fixed-wing personnel recovery platform. The new aircraft came directly off the production line from Lockheed Martin and went straight to the flight line earlier just two mo

    C-130 News: New Zealand military buys 5 Lockheed Hercules planes for $1B

    New Zealand's military said Friday it will buy five Super Hercules transport planes from Lockheed Martin for $1 billion. The planes will replace the military's existing fleet of Hercules, all of which are more than 50 years old and have been involved in a series of embarrassing breakdowns over recent years. Defense Minister Ron Mark said the new planes will be used for operations in New Zealand, the South Pacific and Antarctica. “Generations of New Zealanders have grown up and gro

  • Utility System Accumulator

    The suction boost pumps located near the reservoirs are used to provide a positive hydraulic pressure of 70-l 10 PSI to the suction side of each engine driven pump when turned on. This pressure prevents cavitation and helps to “prime” an engine driven pump should air get into the suction line. If the reservoir fluid level is kept within limits and correct maintenance procedures are followed, air will not enter the system. When a hydraulic component is replaced, the cavities of the new unit shoul

    Utility System Accumulator

    Yea if you just changed the accumulator, I almost guarantee that a huge air bubble went through the system. The landing gear is a huge draw on the system and that is usually when you will see trapped air go through the system like that.

    Utility System Accumulator

    Yes Air Bubble is one possibility but the precharge pressure of accumulator was not depleted but rather within limits.  Yes there was one particular component change specific to this system prior to the flight and that was Utility System Accumulator. It was replaced. However as Ive mentioned before, Accumulator was found Serviceable after the flight with Pre Charge pressure within limits, indicating that no Air was depleted into the system. Both EDPs were bench checked as well and were

    Utility System Accumulator

    Lots of things are possible. I mainly said to check the suction boost pump because you said the light came on.  Usually engine pumps will just cause low pressure overall and maybe a low pressure light for that engine driven pump but the suction boost pump light coming on says the supply to both engine pumps was low. It could have been something as simple as an air bubble making its way through the system when the gear operated.  Keep an eye out for having to service air side of accumul

    • Dining Out
      By Sonny · Posted
      A man is dining in a fancy restaurant, and there is a gorgeous redhead sitting at the next table. He had been checking her out since he sat down, but lacked the nerve to talk with her. Suddenly she sneezes and her glass eye comes flying out of its socket towards the man. He reflexively reaches out, grabs it out of the air, and hands it back. "Oh my, I am so sorry," the woman says as she pops her eye back in place. "Let me buy you dessert to make it up to you." They enj

    • Effects Of Media Headlines
      By Sonny · Posted
      From my good friend Mel: Bruce lived in California and was a lifelong environmentalist. He was sick of the world; of Covid-19, Brexit, Russian belligerence, global warming, racial tensions, and the rest of the disturbing stories that occupy media headlines. Bruce drove his car into his garage and then sealed every doorway and window as best he could. He got back into his car and rolled down the windows, selected his favorite radio station, started the car and revved it to a slow idle.
