  1. Today
  2. I had a blind date last night but before it I was worried what to do if she was really unattractive. My friend told me not to worry as there’s an app for just that situation. It’s called “Mom Are You Ok” and it schedules your phone to ring just after you meet your date. If you like her, you just ignore your phone. If you want to cut short the date, you answer with, “Mom? What’s the matter? Are you okay?” It works every time, no worries. So anyway, I knocked on the girl’s door and it turns out I needn’t have worried at all. She was absolutely gorgeous and stunning! But just when I was about to speak to her, her phone rang. She answered it and said, “Mom? What’s the matter? Are you okay?”
  3. Short answer is yes. I was stationed at Lockbourne from ‘68 to ‘69 and as our “A” models were sent back for refurb and updates, they came back fitted with “CPI” mod. (Crash Position Indicator) if you look at the pictures in the “picture gallery” under my name, Tom C, you’ll see pictures to confirm this. I hope this is what your looking for. tom

  10. Hi Everyone, I am new to this fleet, I was going through section 6 of loading manual, and it says axle weight more than 13000 lbs can be carried using shoring. Can you please help me out as in how to calculate the shoring dimensions for airlifting such cargo.
  11. Hello, i have a another problem, ASB 54H60-61-A157 say a propeller is adequately preserved if the propeller is rotated once in 2 month. But the preservation in P5059 is it necessary for have a adequately preserved propeller or just a rotation ? And last question, a aircraft immobilized for check may be considered like an active aircraft (term in ASB) ? Thanks for your responce.
  12. I would suspect a MLG motor or utility relief valve to create that low of a pressure drop on both engines when isolated. Assuming you are isolating everything correctly, but do this: 1. Turn off all 3 boost packs (red guarded shutoffs). Is pressure the same? If it changes, isolate boost pack 1 at a time. 2. Run the system up and let it run for a good 15 minutes. Does the utility relief valve get hot? Can you hear it bypassing? Possible that it is dumping your pressure back to return 3. Remove the hydraulic lines and cap the outlet ports from the landing gear selector valve. Run the system up, does it still have the low pressure?
  13. Hello, Could you send me C130J training manuals that you have. Many thanks! my e-mail: [email protected]

  17. A teacher asks the kids in her 3rd grade class: "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Little Larry says: "I wanna start out as a Fighter Pilot, then be a billionaire, go to the most expensive clubs, find me the finest whore, give her a Ferrari worth over a million bucks, an apartment in Copacabana, a mansion in Paris, a jet to travel throughout Europe, an Infinite Visa Card, and all the while banging her like a loose screen door in a hurricane." The teacher, shocked and not knowing what to do with this horrible response from little Larry, decides not to acknowledge what he said and simply tries to continue with the lesson. "And how about you, Sarah?" "I wanna be Larry’s whore..."

    I feel like I'm diagonally parked in a parallel universe. Remember: First you pillage then you burn. To err is human. To forgive is against company policy. If at first you don't succeed, redefine success. Xerox and Wurlitzer will merge to market reproductive organs. Half the people in the world are below average. Failure is not an option. It's bundled with your software. You chatter more than a dolphin by a fish bucket. Save the whales: collect the whole set . I just got lost in thought, and it was unfamiliar territory. You have the right to remain silent, anything you say will be misquoted, then used against you. Despite the cost of living, have you noticed how popular it remains? Atheism is a non-prophet organization. The problem with sex in the movies is the popcorn usually spills. Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm. The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. I drive way too fast to worry about cholesterol. Time is a great healer, but a terrible beautician. Capital punishment isn't for making examples, it's for making bad people dead. My mind is like a steel trap - rusty and illegal in 37 states. Quantum mechanics: The dreams stuff is made of. The only substitute for good manners is fast reflexes. Support bacteria - they're the only culture some people have. When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane and going the wrong way. If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried. A conclusion is the place where you got tired of thinking. Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it. For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism. Never do card tricks for the group you play poker with. No one is listening until you make a mistake. Success always occurs in private and failure in full view. The colder the x-ray table the more of your body is required on it. The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the ability to reach it. To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research. To succeed in politics, it is often necessary to rise above your principles. Monday is an awful way to spend 1/7th of your life. Two wrongs are only the beginning. The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard. The sooner you fall behind the more time you'll have to catch up. A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory. Change is inevitable except from vending machines. Plan to be spontaneous - tomorrow. Always try to be modest and be proud of it!
  19. I was stationed at LRAFB from '70 to '72 I was crew chief on ST 69-6577 and I was on the flight line on 11/12/71 and witnessed the crash of C-130E 69-6578 The one thing that confuses me is the photo of the crash that shows the tail section and it looks like the letters in the tail code shows SR not ST Is the photo not of that particular crash or is it the way the tail is sitting?
  20. The 130H-4-15-1 shows support equipment IPB. Support equipment is listed in the 130H-2-2.
  21. Employment History: My first job was working in an orange juice factory, but I got canned because I couldn't concentrate. I worked in the woods as a lumberjack, but I just couldn't hack it, so they gave me the ax. I was a tailor, but I just wasn't suited for it. It was a so-so job. I worked in a muffler factory but that was exhausting. I was a barber, but I just couldn't cut it. I tried to be a chef. I thought it would add a little spice to my life,but I just didn't have the thyme. I was a deli worker, but anyway I sliced it, I couldn't cut the mustard. I was a musician, but eventually I found I wasn't noteworthy. I studied a long time to become a doctor, but I didn't have the patients. I worked in a shoe factory; I tried but I just didn't fit in. I became a professional fisherman, but discovered that I couldn't live on my net income. I always wanted to be a witch, so I tried that for a spell. I managed to get a good job working for a pool maintenance company, but the work was just too draining. I got a job at a zoo feeding giraffes but I was fired because I wasn't up to it. I got a job in a health club, but they said I wasn't fit for the job. I found being an electrician interesting, but the work was shocking. I got a job as a historian but I realized there was no future in it. I was working at Starbucks, but I had to quit because it was always the same old grind.
  22. Tsgt William j candelario was burned severely transported to near by hospital and later died on dec.23.1972. He was unrecognizable at the time if death.
  23. An aged farmer and his wife were leaning against the edge of their pig-pen when the old woman wistfully recalled that the next week would mark their Golden Wedding Anniversary. "Let's have a big party, Homer," she suggested. "You'll need to kill a pig." The farmer scratched his grizzled head. "Gee, Ethel," he finally answered, "I don't see why the pig should take the blame for something that happened fifty years ago."
  24. Thank you so very much! Much appreciation!👍
  25. Hi, when should we preserve a propeller on an airplane? After how many days of aircraft immobilization, do you start preserving a propeller? Preservation is planned for checks but is it necessary for immobilization of less than 15 days or 1 month or 2 months?
