SCNS mod

The C-130B model that got modified for SCNS was 59-1531 that was my bird when I was an ART at Peterson AFB, CO. with the 302nd

Airlift Wing.

I went out to Rickenbacker AFB, OH (Columbus) to put it back together and get it ready to return to Peterson. Since the "B" model was so different from the the E's & H's alot of the flight instruments did not work with SCNS. I had 2 factory technicians from LSI out for weeks going over prints and drawings figuring out the problems. Eventually they got all the bugs worked out of it and the system worked really well.

Whenever our unit had a mission up near the "poles" or dewline they always requested my bird for the mission. Something about "grid" navigation was much easier, plus the dual inu's and gps.

73, Rex
