  1. Past hour
  2. I couldn't find an old TCTO that made the system inoperational. This note was in the old 130B-2-4. There is also no mention of C-130B or E having it in TO 1C-130H-2-70GS-00-1.
  3. Yesterday
  4. Ultimately everything gets carried or dropped from a C-130. I suppose this is safer than barrels of JP-4. or even cows.
  5. 42E1-1-1 is the TO for this information. AS21913 and AS21914 are part numbers -4, -6, -8, -10, -12, -16 are sizes you want So complete part numbers would be AS21913-4 or AS21914-12 for example. Dash and number at end is size. Search those numbers in 42E1-1-1 and it even has NSNs for you
  6. Last week
  7. I am talking about caps and plugs for maintenance on hydraulic system.
  8. US Air Force tests dropping cruise missiles from ramp of cargo aircraft By Garrett Reim28 May 2020 The US Air Force (USAF) is moving forward with an experiment to drop cruise missiles from the back ramp of cargo aircraft. The Air Force Research Laboratory and Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) successfully tested releasing mock cruise missiles on 28 January 2020 from the cargo ramp of the Lockheed Martin MC-130J Commando II, the service says on 27 May. Source: US Air Force Mock CLEAVER cruise missile being dropped from MC-130J Dropping cruise missiles from cargo aircraft is considered a cheaper alternative to designing a clean-sheet bomber. USAF leaders have recently discussed the possibility of developing an “Arsenal Plane”, a new bomber which would carry large numbers of cruise missiles into combat. As part of the January experiment, munitions were stacked upon wooden pallets, called Combat Expendable Platforms, and rolled off the back of the MC-130J. “AFSOC aircrew released five [Combat Expendable Platforms] rigged with six simulated munitions, the same mass as the actual weapons, including four Cargo Launch Expendable Air Vehicles with Extended Range (CLEAVERs) across a spectrum of low and high altitude airdrops,” says the USAF. “These long-range, high precision weapons destroy moving and non-moving targets.” The Phase 1 demonstrations were conducted during three airdrops at Dugway Proving Ground, Utah. CLEAVER is an experimental cruise missile. The USAF envisions cargo aircraft, such as the C-130 or Boeing C-17 Globemaster III carrying the weapons to the edge of the air battle, and then dropping and firing the missiles deep into enemy airspace. The weapons would be networked with each other and other aircraft. The missiles would be semi-autonomous, and accompany unmanned air vehicles and fighter jets on combat missions, the service says. The USAF wants the missiles to swarm and overwhelm a target. In particular, long-range cruise missiles are seen as a means to destroy military targets while remaining beyond the reach of China and Russia’s anti-aircraft missile batteries. In future demonstrations, AFSOC plans to test different variants of CLEAVER, including glider and powered types, as well as fully functional missiles with warheads and terminal guidance systems, it says.
  9. The acft should have come with all the caps/plugs. Would think they are listed in the TO too. I know LMCO uses Sesame Technologies Inc (STI) as a supplier for their caps/plugs.
  10. I am looking for a list of all the possible Cap and Plug that would be necessary to work on a C130J. We do not have anything at the moment and we normally use a bag and tape or zip tie which is far from ideal. Do you guys have list that I could use to build a Cap and Plug Kit set? I do have the list for the H model, but it looks like there are some missing. Thanks!
  11. Psychic Frog A frog telephones the Psychic Hotline and his Personal Psychic Advisor tells him: "You are going to meet a beautiful young girl who will want to know everything about you." The frog is thrilled, "This is great! Will I meet her at a party?" "No," says his Advisor, "in her biology class.
  12. Hello Experty , Nacelle preheat system inoperative in c130 B & E aircraft, plz any body knows about why this system inoperative,any TCTO or SB referance for deactivates this system, plz share Regards
  13. Yes, because it is flooding through the delivery nozzles and tubes as though the engine were running
  14. Ok. For this, can oil leakage occur from rear bearing(Exhaust cone/ Dome over the pump) bottom side just front of the 4 th stage turbine rotor viewed from rear.
  15. Main oil pump: pressure regulator poppet valve has cracked
  16. Can anybody explain the probable causes of static oil leakage aftet eng idle grd run from Turbine rear bearing( flooding in front of 4 th stage rotor), burner drain vslve( rear one), 6:O clock, lower bleed valve. Tank oil lvl also reduced from 10.5 to 3.5. But during run Everything was fine. Eng is only 1021:44 hrs op after OH.
  17. As a 1st step we have changed the gauge. Let see what happened next. Thanks a lot.

    Memorial Day

    What a powerful image of what this weekend is about.
  19. Hey Hercules world. I have a problem with one of my eng which is only 1021:44 TSO. On 22 May 20, Idle grd run was carr out at Normal GI power as the AC is on grd since 16 Mar 20 due to expiry of ac TBO. Grd Run being carr out all 04 Eng after 15 days cycl. This eng is at No 4 Posn. During Grd Run everything was found normal incl all parametets, oil qty was 10.5 USG, oil temp, oil press everything was just fine. But on 23 May, it was found that, oil dropping from drain mast. We thought it normal. But today, 25 May, when we ckd the tank, oil was found only 3.5 USG. We ckd throughly and found that, oil dropping from the 5th satge bottom bleed valve, from the rear burner drain valve, from turbine rear bearing( front of 4th stage rotor bottom and also accumulated oil flooding in front of turbine 4th stage rotor. Scav oil filter assy ckd for CB pop out, but found ok. It may be mentioned that, after OH, this eng has been ops with light white smoke coming at Idle power through drain madt( breather Vent). But at High power setting, smoke not visible and oil cobsumption well below spec limit. What I can do now? Pl advise.
  20. cheers up hercs expert...im seeking a guidance on doing touch n go with fuel in external tank, does it ok or not? if not what structure will be affected since in AFM as image below to preclude landing in fuel in external ,anyting with fuel sloshing? pls help me...
  21. Earlier
  22. I was told that a test was run, throwing a dummy out of the crew entry door, because they were afraid that if you ever used it in flight, you might hit the LH MLG pod. They were surprised when the dummy hit the RH MLG pod because the air swirls around the fuselage.
  23. Anyone here know anything about the "Bangkok Incident"? The guy who told me about it said that when he tried to casually ask an AF officer about it in the 1970's, the guy immediately clammed up. Loss of control with such violent gyrations that it was said all the propeller blade bearings were "shattered".
  24. Useful Military Warnings: "Aim towards the Enemy." - Instruction printed on U.S. Rocket Launcher "When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend." - U.S. Army "Cluster bombing from B-52s is very, very accurate. The bombs are guaranteed to always hit the ground." - U.S.A.F. Ammo Troop "If the enemy is in range, so are you." - Infantry Journal "A slipping gear could let your M203 grenade launcher fire when you least expect it. That would make you quite unpopular in what's left of your unit." - Army's magazine of preventive maintenance "It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just bombed." - U.S. Air Force Manual "Try to look unimportant; they may be low on ammo." - Infantry Journal "Tracers work both ways." - U.S. Army Ordnance "Five-second fuses only last three seconds." - Infantry Journal "Bravery is being the only one who knows you're afraid." - Col. David Hackworth "If your attack is going too well, you're probably walking into an ambush." - Infantry Journal "No combat-ready unit has ever passed inspection." - Joe Gay "Any ship can be a minesweeper ... once." - Anonymous "Never tell the Platoon Sergeant you have nothing to do." - Unknown Army Recruit "Don't draw fire; it irritates the people around you." - Your Buddies (And lastly) "If you see a bomb technician running, try to keep up with him." - U.S. Ammo Troop
  25. Signs Found In The Kitchen: So this isn't Home Sweet Home ... Adjust! Ring bell for maid service. If no answer, do it yourself! I clean house every other day. Today is the other day. If you write in the dust, please don't date it! I would cook dinner but I can't find the can opener! A clean kitchen is the sign of a wasted life. My house was clean last week, too bad you missed it! I came, I saw, I decided to order take out. If you don't like my standards of cooking ...lower your standards. Although you'll find our house a mess, Come in, sit down, converse. It doesn't always look like this: Some days it's even worse. A messy kitchen is a happy kitchen, and this kitchen is delirious. A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand! Thou shalt not weigh more than thy refrigerator. Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused. Countless number of people have eaten in this kitchen and gone on to lead normal lives. My next house will have no kitchen ... just vending machines. I'd live life in the fast lane, but I am married to a speed bump. Mother does not live here any more, clean up your own mess. Martha Stewart doesn't live here!!
