  4. Make sure that the ring for the chain is connected to the side of the pin and not to the button. If the chain is connected to a ring on the button, it can release the pin if the chain is pulled on.
  5. Sir You never observe ball of pip pin become U/S or spring lost his tension Munir Abbasi
  6. Fourteen years on C-130s, never lost this pin. As nascarpop posted above, best to insert pin front to back.
  7. Managed to finally find one online. I have been looking for years. Found it on E-Bay and snapped it up. Army Outfitters in New York had it. Now all I have to do is see if I remember how to use it. Probably need to find a Form F online.
  8. A few minutes before the church services started, the congregation was sitting in their pews and talking. Suddenly, Satan appeared at the front of the church. Everyone started screaming and running for the back entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away from evil incarnate. Soon the church was empty except for one elderly gentleman who sat calmly in his pew without moving, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy was in his presence. So Satan walked up to the man and said, 'Do you know who I am?' T
  9. It was checked by flt engr before takeoff in intact position. After landing, half portion of chain alongwith pin was found missing...
  10. Right? Everyones “copy paste share” status will die with me. Please put this as your status if you know someone who has been eaten by dragons. Dragons are nearly unstoppable and, in case you didn't know, they can breathe fire. 93% of people won't copy and paste this, because they have been eaten by dragons. The other 7% of people are sitting in the shower armed with fire extinguishers and will (hopefully) put this as their status.
  11. Pins should always go in from front of aircraft to back of aircraft. Harder to come out that way!
  12. Upper Pip Pin of doors of Main LDGs are secured with safety chains normally but pip pins should be checked by C /chief in every schedule inspection for serviceability ie two balls,with passage of time ball spring loaded are be come U/S one or both. you cannot insert the pip pin during flight /landing/takeoff. It seem to be negligence of crew crew chief Best Regards Munir Abbasi
  13. Question is... What are the possibilities for quick release pin to come off from the hole of stowage rod inside main landing gear along with broken chain during flying mission??
  14. Is it possible stowage rod upper bracket quick release pin came off from it's hole during flying/takeoff/landing
  15. I forgot to include my email. [email protected] Lou Erthal 1979-1980 Det 98 Erzurum Turkey
  16. Mary I was stationed at Det 98 Erzurum Turkey. Carl C. Carr was from our Det. I believe you are correct stating it was a missle attack. We were told by our commander Maj. Delumo that a Turkish witness stated that they saw an surface to air missile hit that C130 on that day. We also had routine C130s land at the air field in Erzurum bring supplies. On one day it was pointed out there a bullet hole in the airplane. When I arrived in country Sgt. Mosley was gunned down out in front of our hotel. Lou

  18. I was stationed at Det 98 Erzurum Turkey when the C130 crashed. Carl C.Carr I knew personally. I have his last photo that I took before we left to meet the C130 at the air field. If a family member sees this you can contact me and I will send it. Also our mess hall was named Carl C. Carr Hall in his honor. I was a Spec.4 in Erzurum 1979-1980. Louis Erthal
  19. Please copy and paste this to your status if you're constantly being asked to copy and paste things to your status by friends who copy and paste things to their status. Many people won't copy and paste this, but my true sarcastic friends will copy and paste it because they know this was copied and pasted from a dear friend in need of more stuff to copy and paste; and if you don't copy and paste it, then this means you hate Jesus, kittens, and puppies, and bacon. And if you hate bacon, the terrorists win.
  20. DILBERT'S WORDS OF WISDOM: 1. I can please only one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow, isn't looking good either. 2. I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make as they go flying by. 3. Am I getting smart with you? How would you know? 4. I'd explain it to you, but your brain would explode. 5. Someday we'll look back on all this and plow into a parked car.

    Cool, cool video!! PHOTO-2021-02-10-05-12-30.mp4
  22. Had to for LAPES and other parachute extractions unless you wanted to ride along. Unless it was an emergency, only the flight deck would open ramp and door during flight. Side doors for personnel jumps and small drops were opened by the Loadmaster.
  23. I know I don't have a copy of the video, but I might still have a hard copy of the briefing slides buried in a box somewhere. You could try the Air Force Safety Center at Kirtland or the AMC Flight Safety Office at Scott for the video. The C-130 SPD at W-R might be another possibility. I don't know how long the a/c stayed afloat, but it had to be sunk by gunfire from a USCG cutter. The tanks were not empty, but not far from it, either. The Columbian BG who put it in the water, a former PBY pilot by the way, knew he had to ditch while he still had power. They also jettisoned a ca
  24. Yes, Co-Pilot would do it. More of a stretch, but the FE could reach it.
