bobdaley Posted February 15, 2016 Share Posted February 15, 2016 The rumor of the 181 AS damage got me thinking about flying safety. Going back I can come up with 32 AFR C-130 units-now 12 and 36 ANG units-now 24. I'll try to do the active duty units later. Of the 12 AFR units still flying only 2 have had accidents. 95 AS had 2 both in Honduras 56-0501 an A in 1985 and 88-4408 an H in 1997. 731AS had 1 62-1838 in Idaho in 1995. Of the 12 units 9 have been accident free for 33 years or more and of those 96AS has been 46 years, 328AS 45 years, 815AS 43 years. Of the 24 ANG units still flying, only 4 have had accidents, 156AS 93-1458 an H,firefighting in South Dakota, in 2012, 154TRS 61-2373 an E in 1988, at Greenville MS,when the unit was transitioning, 165 AS 58-0732 a B at Evansville IN, in 1992 and maybe 192 AS 79-0478 an H in 2015-not sure if a probable cause was reached on that one, in SW Asia. 15 of the 24 units have been accident free for 38 years or more. 115AS with 46 years and 109AS with 45 years lead the pack. An absolutely amazing safety record. Shows excellent maintenance and highly skilled flight crews. Bob I will attempt to figure out the Active duty squadrons, it will take me longer because sometimes I can only find wg numbers not squadron numbers. Any corrections appreciated!
