  2. When your only tool is a hammer, all problems start looking like nails. Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity. The last thing I want to do is insult you. But it IS on the list. I don't have a solution, but I do admire the problem. The only substitute for good manners is fast reflexes. Support bacteria - they're the only culture some people have. Letting the cat out of the b
  3. I have no idea without a callout in the IPB.
  4. Earlier
  5. Is that the check valve separating the cargo AC pack ducting from the fuselage AC ducting within the pressurized area?
  6. And remember, on those older E models, you have the two urinal drain bleeds, in addition to the jet pump on the outflow valve and the safety valve constant flow points.
  7. Ponderings: How come you press harder on a remote-control when you know the battery is dead? Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations? You know how most packages say "Open here".What is the protocol if the package says, "Open somewhere else"? Since Americans throw rice at weddings do orientals throw hamburgers? Why are they called buildings, when they're already finished? Shouldn't
  8. Advice from Men to Women: Never buy a 'new' brand of beer because 'it was on sale.' If we're in the backyard and the TV in the den is on, that doesn't mean we're not watching it. Don't tell anyone we can't afford a new car. Tell them we don't want one. Whenever possible please try to say whatever you have to say during commercials. Only wearing your new lingerie once does not send the message that you need more. It tells us lingerie is a bad investment. Please don't drive when you're not driving. Don't feel compelled to tell us how
  9. Nice to see you back! Always enjoyed your posts. Hey Ken!!! Always nice to hear from you, too.
  10. I was in the six item express lane at the store quietly fuming. Completely ignoring the sign, the woman ahead of me had slipped into the check-out line pushing a cart piled high with groceries. Imagine my delight when the cashier beckoned the woman to come forward looked into the cart and asked sweetly, "So which six items would you like to buy?"
  11. Thanks Munir Abbasi Home of Hercules Pakistan
  12. There are way too many LAC processes to remember that much. Also, some wiring was replaced by newer designs. The 1-!A-14 has the story on aircraft wiring.
  13. Sir Gary your excellent engineer/technician of electrical wiring and hope you will collect the previous best memory and reply. Munir Abbasi Home of Hercules Pakistan
  14. That looks like sheet 1 of 4, I wonder if he looks at sheet 4 may find what he is looking for.
  15. WOW! One really neet thing about seeing a picture like this is knowing where it was taken. When you boil it all down, we all made a lot of friends in the USAF and some of them are good for a life time. Along with a lot of others, I've said that my few years in the Air Force were the defining years of my life. The C-130 and fellow Herk guys are good for a an old man! Thanks Ken
  16. Hey Chris, it's good to see you back on the forum. I kind of slowed down, but I am starting to miss you guys so am on here more often. I realize I am way behind on our "picture war", and I will be getting back in touch soon via e-mail or phone call. So, be expecting an e-mail soon loaded with pictures! By the way, I wished everybody a happy new year on the 31st of Dec. Anyway, old buddy good to see you here, Ken PS Up by Woodbine
  17. You will have to contact Lockheed. I used to have access to those LAC processes when I was working.
  18. Not a pneumatics guy, but it looks like an expansion joint like the type used in plumbing. Doesn't the parts index indentify it?
  19. I was assigned to that unit at Pope when the crash occurred. It was the 318th Special Operations Squadron and the aircraft was an MC-130E, which is a variant of the basic C-130. I remember that night very well and think often about the incident and the friends we all lost. I don't think any of us were the same thereafter.
  20. Hello fellow Herk lovers. It's been a long time since I last checked in. A few years in fact. Had some health problems to deal with and of course the day to day grind. I'm not real sure if this is the proper place for this "homecoming", but I'm sure it will get moved if need be. I scrolled around a bit before signing in and noticed a few names still left from the old days. I did not see MT Crewchief or gizzard, although over the past few years I have been in personal contact with both of them as well as lee Sills. I made the trip out to Montana several times and Ken and I have become good frie
  21. Naha FB group, I just found this a couple of weeks ago. For those of us who were stationed at Naha AB you may want to check this out and consider joining the group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/73013675579 Bob Podboy 374th Jet MX
  22. I think this link works better. Page 23 it starts. https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/007419784

  24. Bield Kirk, Blue Flame and Blinking Light were all the same mission. They just changed the name every three years or when the mission name was compromised.
