  1. I remember reading that this or a similar jig has been in use since the start of C-130 production. Is that correct? Thanks, Koen

  2. Hello: That design of the door is because of the space the wheel need to go up and down without get stuck. If you go to the emergency and abnormal procedures section of the flight manual, Main Landing gear Extension After Normal and Emergency System Failure, one note say this: Extend the Aft strut firt. The main landing gear doors are opened by a mechanical connection to the aft strut, and damage to the doors could result if the forward strut is extended firt. If the door don't have that shape the wheel would get stuck.

  3. I'm no structures engineer, I'm just a pointy-head old RADAR tech. But, given the sloping longerons are the primary structure on the aft fuselage, and there aren't any beefy pieces up on the top section of the fuselage that come close to the longeron, I would have to utilize very few Risk Assessment principles and say not only no, but... There is nothing in the 130A-3 as a caution, but I seriously doubt an engineer would suggest that both can be done at the same time.
