C-130 blue formation lights


Recommended Posts

Hello all, I was an RCAF Herk rigger in the late 70’s. I am trying to find a diagram or clear photo showing the location of the early blue formation lights located on top of the wing. If I recall, there were 4, 2 on each side, aft of the box spar. Flush mounted, probably about 3” in diameter with a cobalt blue lens. I am a model builder and want to light up my Herk. I remember them from when I was doing DI’s and was up top checking for cracks or damage to the surfaces. So these were CC-130E and H. This was before the slime lights. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

                      Jeff

Thanks Bogi252, I had emailed you a couple of days ago, but strangely I got the email sent to back my inbox 3 times!

I tried again tonight, seems to have worked normally, I will keep my fingers crossed.

Jeff 🙂
