SEA Period C-130 Door/Ramp Question


Recommended Posts

Hi folks.  Looking to verify something I was told recently about SEA vintage C-130s.  Was it possible to lower the ramp/open the cargo doors in flight from the flight deck?  If so, would that have been done by one of the pilots or the FE?

 

Thanks

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.
