Do you need an airworthy set, a static display set or for mock-up use?

If you need them for static or mock-up, we have a set from an early E model. They have been repaired upper and lower and are first generation E wings. They are not in a condition where you would want to fly with them, but are still sealed and mounted on an airframe.

National Aircraft in Tucson has about 10 sets of A model wings still installed that are in display condition as well as 1 set of low time (less that 1500 hours) with records. All are available for sale. They also have 1 set of early E models wings (square dry bay access doors) suitable for class room or static display condition still mounted to the center wing.

The ex RAAF C130A 3214 owned by Earl Cherry is going to require some outer wings. These are the original ones and according to Snow Aviation need replacing.

There should be a market for real late model wings, the RAF already have concern about the fatique on their J models.

Ernie you might like to comment, but I think the problem with the RAF ones cause by the high AUW they fly at and maybe how agressively they fly the airplane.

Have heard nothing yet about the RAAF ones, but fatique is a real issue on the RAAF H models, again caused in part by agressive army requirements.

Col,

Pt Cook might like to know Earl is flying 214! Also the wings on Earl's a/c, 212, were replanked in the mid-70's along with all the other A's.

I'm waiting to hear from Earl again regarding sorting the RAAF records so he can understand them. I spoke to him in Dec, 08 about the records and possibly getting a wing assembly (tip-to-tip) that are less than 1500 hours as the RAAF did not fit the beefed up centre wing nor did they fit the 220 splice plates to the outer wings.
