J-Model APU


Recommended Posts

There is a photo on airliners.net that shows a J-model taking off from Altus AFB with the APU door open (probably running). Heaven forbid that I post the photo here without the photographer\'s permission (don\'t want to piss off the \"mystery Herc\" photographer or the copywrite police), so here\'s the photo number -- 1354905. Check it out.

Now, here\'s my question. Is it normal procedure on the J-model to run the APU in flight? As I remember, it was an emergency procedure for the military & the APU wasn\'t certified for inflight use on commercial Hercs.
