  1. We had 10 Rescue birds at Hill AFB Ut. in 1971 when we stood up The 1550 ATTW. Had H. N and P models and all of them had the ODS rails. And as stated before we used the winch on the ODS to lift the end of the 1800gal. tanks and drag them to the end of the ramp. We also removed the Fulton booms on the nose at Hill as they made too much noise and no one was qualified on the system anymore. Some tails, 971 and 851 and 224 I think. Been so many years ago. We crew chiefs were trained on the IFR pods also, what a mess when the hose unwound inside the pod. Max hacksaw time.

  2. Where Was CRB--Cam Ranh Bay-- The Sandbox-- was a Base in South Vietnam where guys (Maintenance Technicians) from places like CCK Taiwan ( too long a name to write it out) Naha Okinawa, Clark in the PI --Phillipines, and Mactan all came together to drink a little beer and fix C-130 Hercules! Later on it would be called The Airlift Rodeo at Pope AFB N.C. Hello Nascarpop and Mt.crewchief always good to hear from fellow Naha friends!

  3. Late 90's or early 2000's. I know it came out when I was in Alaska, 98-01. There wasn't a TCTO issued for it that I know of, it was just used as an alternate antenna. It was mounted in the same holes that the old antenna used. It got rid of the corrosion problem caused by the copper band on the old antenna mounting surfaces.

  4. BLONDE COOKBOOK MONDAY: It's fun to cook for Tom. Today I made angel food cake. The recipe said beat 12 eggs separately. The neighbors were nice enough to loan me some extra bowls. TUESDAY: Tom wanted fruit salad for supper. The recipe said serve without dressing. So I didn't dress. What a surprise when Tom brought a friend home for supper. WEDNESDAY: A good day for rice. The recipe said wash thoroughly before steaming the rice. It seemed kind of silly but I took a bath anyway. I can't say it improved the rice any. THURSDAY: Today Tom asked for salad again. I tried a new recipe. It said prepare ingredients, lay on a bed of lettuce one hour before serving. Tom asked me why I was rolling around in the garden. FRIDAY: I found an easy recipe for cookies. It said put the ingredients in a bowl and beat it. There must have been something wrong with this recipe. When I got back, everything was the same as when I left. SATURDAY: Tom did the shopping today and brought home a chicken. He asked me to dress it for Sunday (oh boy).For some reason Tom keeps counting to ten. SUNDAY: Tom's folks came to dinner. I wanted to serve roast but all I had was hamburger. Suddenly I had a flash of genius. I put the hamburger in the oven and set the controls for roast. It still came out hamburger, much to my disappointment. GOOD NIGHT DEAR DIARY. This has been a very exciting week. I am eager for tomorrow to come so I can try out a new recipe on Tom. If I can talk Tom into buying a bigger oven, I would like to surprise him with chocolate moose.

  8. The following are actual statements found on insurance forms where car drivers attempted to summarize the details of an accident in the fewest words as possible: The guy was all over the road. I had to swerve a number of times before I hit him. I collided with a stationary truck coming the other way. I had been driving for forty years when I fell asleep at the wheel and had an accident. The other car collided with mine without giving warning of its intentions. I thought the window was down, but I found it was up when I put my head through it. The indirect cause of the crash was the little guy in a small car with a big mouth. An invisible car came out of nowhere, struck my car, and vanished. A truck backed through my windshield and into my wife's face. A pedestrian hit me and went under my car. Coming home, I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don't have. I pulled away from the side of the road, glanced at my mother-in-law, and headed over the embankment. In and attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telephone pole. I had been shopping for plants all day and was on my way home. As I reached the intersection, a hedge sprang up, obscuring my vision and I did not see the other car. As I approached the intersection a sign suddenly appeared in a place where no stop sign had ever appeared before. I was unable to stop in time to avoid the accident. I was on my way to the doctor with rear-end trouble when my universal joint gave way causing me to crash. I told the police I was not injured, but on removing my hat, found that I had a fractured skull. To avoid hitting the bumper in front of me, I struck the pedestrian. My car was legally parked as it backed into the other vehicle. The pedestrian had no idea which way to run, so I ran over him. I was thrown from my car as it left the road. I was later found in a ditch by some stray cows. I was sure the old fellow would never make it to the other side of the road when I struck him. The telephone pole was approaching. I was attempting to swerve out of its way when it struck the front end.. I saw a slow moving, sad faced old gentlemen as he bounced off the hood of my car.

  11. I looked at a few of those issues, didn't really see anything. The removal of the ODS was at depot level, but would think there is a tcto number for that. I really don't think he will ever find anything even close to what he has. Such as it is. Have a good day.

  12. Tiny, Due to boredom, went searching via images for tail numbers with the ODS installed. 69 5820, 5823, 5826, 5827, 5828, 5830, 5831, 5832, 5833 65 0962, 0968, 0974, 0982, 0983, 0984, 66 0221 Those are the ones I could find, so suspect most of the HC-130 fleet had them. Although I do remember some didn't since we used the ods to remove benson tanks and can remember from that. Gary

  13. Good luck, I found nothing in the books. If it were an accurate model, it wouldn't have them since the system was removed many moons ago. You may have the best pic of them. That tail # isn't even on the list of the seven aircraft that was supposed to have it, according to the GS-25-1.

  17. On the formation light picture, you cane see the formation lights are installed over the flap well, not the main part of the wing where the fuel tanks and dry bays are. In early manuals, there was an over the wing refueling port for the Aux tanks, located between the inboard engines and the wing root. Pretty sure they were eliminated when the center wing boxes were replaced due to cracking. Also, those rectangular looking dry bay access doors were replaced by an oval hatch with a round cover in the middle. Disclaimer: It's been a while.

  18. HC-130B had formation lights. (former USCG FE here) Same as all other "B" models. The double dark spots behind #4; inboard is the drybay access cover, about 6 inches in diameter, the outboard dark spot is most likely the #4 fuel tank Over the Wing (OTW) filler port cover. They were always red. Drybay covers were white. Also. when this photo was taken, we had not replaced the outer wings.

  19. While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years old. Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, 'Are you a cop? Yes,' I answered and continued writing the report. My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?' 'Yes, that's right,' I told her. 'Well, then,' she said as she extended her foot toward me, 'would you please tie my shoe?'

  20. A woman from the deepest, most southern part of Alabama goes into the local newspaper office to see that the obituary for her recently deceased husband is written. The obit editor informs her that the fee for the obituary is 50 cents a word. She pauses, reflects and then says, "Well, then, let it read, 'Billy Bob died'." Amused at the woman's thrift, the editor says, "Sorry ma'am, there is a 7 word minimum on all obituaries." Only a little flustered, she thinks things over and in a fewseconds says, "In that case, let it read, 'Billy Bob died - 1983 Pick-up for sale.'"

  22. Mitsy and Milda were talking about their grandchildren after the holidays. Mitsy said, “My daughter-in-law stopped making my grandchildren send their thank you notes. Each year I sent the grandchildren a card with a generous check inside. I always received a lovely thank you note. However, since my daughter-in-law stopped making the grandkids send thank you notes, I never hear from them.” Milda said, “My daughter-in-law never made the grandchildren send thank you notes. I, too, send them a very generous check. However, for the past several years, I hear from them within a week after they receive it. In fact, they each pay me a personal visit.” “Wow,” remarked Mitsy. “I wish mine would do that.” “You can, Mitsy, you can.” “How?” Mitsy asked. “Simple,” Milda replied. “Do what I do: Don’t sign the check”.

  23. I used to be a butcher, but I backed into the meat grinder and got a little behind in my work. I used to be an optician, but I made a spectacle of myself. I worked on screen doors, but I strained myself. I used to work as a hot-air balloon pilot, but my status was up in the air. I used to work in a frozen food factory, but I got fresh and then they canned me. I used to work in a dairy. I got fired for getting in the whey. I lost my job at the massage parlor. I rubbed people the wrong way. I wanted to get a job as a gynecologist, but I couldn't find an opening. I was working in an orange juice factory, but I couldn't concentrate. I tried to be a chef. I imagined it would add a little spice to my life, but I didn't have the thyme. I once was a tailor, but I wasn't suited for it. It was a so-so job. I worked at Starbucks, but it was the same old grind. I tried working in a muffler factory, but that was too exhausting. I tried to work at a deli, but no matter how I sliced it, I couldn't cut the mustard. I worked for a plumber, but that work was too draining. I even worked as a lumberjack, but I couldn't hack it. So they gave me the ax. I tried to work in a shoe factory, but I couldn't fit in. I became a fisherman, but couldn't live on my net income. I was a musician, but I found I wasn't noteworthy. I then got a job at a workout club, but they said I wasn't fit for the job. I got a job as a historian, but there was no future in that! I wanted to become a doctor, but I didn't have any patience.

  24. A man stops by a cafe for breakfast. After paying the tab, he checks his pockets and leaves his tip--three pennies. As he strides toward the door, his waitress muses, only half to herself: "You know, you can tell a lot about a man by the tip he leaves." The man turns around, curiosity getting the better of him. "Oh, really? Tell me, what does my tip say?" "Well, this penny tells me you're a thrifty man." Barely able to conceal his pride, the man utters "Hmm, true enough." "And this penny, it tells me you're a bachelor." Surprised at her perception, he says, "Well, that's true, too." "And the third penny tells me that your father was one, too."

  25. It was mailman George's last day on the job after 35 years of delivering the mail through all kinds of weather. When he arrived at the first house on his route, the whole family came out, roundly congratulated him, and sent him on his way with a tidy gift envelope. At the second house they presented him with a box of fine cigars. The folks at the third house handed him a selection of terrific fishing lures. At the next house, he was met at the door by a strikingly beautiful woman in a revealing negligee. She took him by the hand, and led him up the stairs to the bedroom where she blew his mind with the most passionate love he had ever experienced. When he'd had enough, they went downstairs, where she fixed him a giant breakfast: eggs, potatoes, ham, sausage, blueberry waffles and fresh-squeezed orange juice. When he was truly satisfied, she poured him a cup of steaming coffee. As she was pouring, he noticed a dollar bill sticking out from under the cup's bottom edge. "All this is just too wonderful for words," he said, "but what's the dollar for?" "Well," she said, "last night, I told my husband that today would be your last day, and that I wanted to do something special for you. I asked him what to give you. He said, 'Screw him. Give him a dollar.'" "Breakfast was my idea."

  31. Hello everyone, I was the The Airforce Loadmaster on the lead aircraft C-130 that dropped the 15,000 pound Blu-82 bomb on the island of Koh Tang. The pilot was captain Denny way. We circled in the area for over 10 hours while waiting for the order to drop it. Had we had been authorized to drop it earlier. Maybe we could have help save many of our or marine brothers lives. Our government sends us to war. They want us to be willing to give our lives for our country but unwilling to let us fight it without their interference from 12,000 miles away. They did it in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. We, the boots on the ground, did not lose these wars, the fat assed Generals and politicians did!

  33. Some C-130s from Montana Air National Guard transferred abroad Posted on January 25, 2022 by Jenn Rowell C-130s from the 120th Airlift Wing of the Montana Air National Guard have been transferred to Chile, Colombia and Romania. The older C-130 models at the 120th had been replaced by newer models beginning in June 2021. Two of the older C-130s went to Chile in April, two went to Colombia in September 2021 and the last one went to Romania in December, according to the 120th. The Air Force used the Foreign Military Sales program to transfer the aircraft with no cost to the Air Guard, according to the 120th. All of the transfers were completed by 120th airmen and the goal of the program is to “strengthen U.S. relationships with those nations and to help improve their own air force capabilities,” according to the 120th. “The transfers were great training, the crews earned flight hours and on arrival helped train foreign nation personnel on the aircraft. Once complete, everyone took commercial flights home.” The aircraft that went to Romania is now apart of their 90th Air Transport Base-the 901 Strategic Transport Squadron, according to Romanian media. Over the summer, Col. Trace Thomas, 120th commander, told City Commissioners that the wing would be receiving the newer aircraft throughout the summer to replace their eight and bring the average of the planes to 1992-1993 manufacture versus the 1970s model they’ve been flying. The 120th had been in the running for the C-130J model aircraft but was not selected and will instead be receiving newer C-130H models, the first of which arrived June 2.

  36. Sonny, I wish you and all of you others a happy New Year also.---I plan on being around then!! I see that we were probably both sitting on the parking area at CRB at the same time on Christmas of 1967 and New Year 1968. That was my first trip to Vietnam on 56-0475 . I used to ask, on this forum, every year if anybody remembers my acft getting shot up fairly extensively on Jan 1st 1968 at Katum VN. I was on that flight and boy was it exciting. We got shot (small arms) 13 times and had fuel spewing out of the left wing between the engines. Of course we had to land, and get the (105mm w/fuses) offloaded and figure out a way to stop the fuel leak. Dan Lafferty , the assistant crew-chief on 475 & I took the ladder off the bulkhead and pounded some fuel cell dowells into the holes with JP-4 soaking us in the process. When we got the leak stopped (kind of) then the FE started the GTC---blowing hot exhaust on the large fuel pool while I transferred the fuel at the fuel panel to balance the wings for take-off. Anyway, we made it back to CRB and I spent the night over in Fuel Cell ---no power--in the dark-- in VC country (or so it seemed) until daylight waiting to get out of there. Over the years on this forum I used to tell this same story hoping to find somebody who remembered it! No luck, so I finally quit trying. Now that quite a few years have gone by, I am asking again. I may have gotten the dates mixed up, but I doubt it. I do remember that everywhere we went that day, we were hauling and off loading ammo while the bases were under attack. Most of the time pushing it out onto the cement while taxiing . I know that TET started that month, but towards the end of Jan. If any of you guys remember something happening like that during the same time over there, I would appreciate hearing from you. at [email protected] One more memory is that I remember a change of command --or something like that, that I got stuck marching in at Naha, the flight crew got medals for that mission. Which of course is par for the course, but ---how would you feel watching that knowing that you and your partner did all of the work? I have no idea where the flight crew was when all of that was happening. So, thanks for listening, and helping me get that off my chest all of you have a good 2022. Ken Carlson

  37. C-130 PDM inspections are governed by 1C-130A-6 Aircraft Scheduled Inspections and Maintenance Instructions, applicable to all C-130 aircraft. However, this manual only provides general descriptions of inspection requirements. It does not contain detailed procedures that can be followed. Each organization's production control and engineering must create their own procedures based on these requirements, based on inspection and maintenance practices contained in other applicable maintenance manuals.

  40. Grandma is eighty-eight years old and still drives her own car. She writes: Dear Grand-daughter, The other day I went up to our local Christian book store and saw a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker .. I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting.. So, I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper. Boy, am I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed. I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, and I didn't notice that the light had changed. It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed. I found that lots of people love Jesus! While I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, 'For the love of God!' 'Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!' What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus! Everyone started honking! I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those loving people. I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love! There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a sunny beach. I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air. I asked my young teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant. He said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something. Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii, so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign right back. My grandson burst out laughing. Why even he was enjoying this religious experience!! A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed. So, grinning, I waved at all my brothers and sisters, and drove on through the intersection. I noticed that I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared. So I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!! Will write again soon, Love, Grandma ...

  42. Women Drivers I tell you, women drivers are a hazard to traffic. Driving to work this morning on the freeway, I looked over to my left and there was a woman in a Mustang doing 65 miles per hour with her face up next to her rear view mirror putting on her eyeliner! I looked away for a couple seconds and when I looked back she was halfway over in my lane. It scared me so bad I dropped my electric shaver in my coffee, and it spilled all over my cell phone!

  43. The Bible According to Kids: The following statements about the Bible were written by children and have not been retouched or corrected (i.e., bad spelling has been left in.) In the first book of the Bible, Guinesses, God got tired of creating the world, so he took the Sabbath off. Adam and Eve were created from an apple tree. Noah's wife was called Joan of Ark because Noah built the ark, which the animals came to in pears. Lot's wife was a pillar of salt by day, but a ball of fire by night. The Jews were a proud people and throughout history they had trouble with unsympathetic Genitals. Samson was a strong man who let himself be led astray by a Jezebel like Delilah. Samson slew the Philistines with the axe of the Apostles. Moses led the Hebrews to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread, which is bread without any ingredients. The Egyptians were all drowned in the dessert. Afterwards, Moses went up to Mount Cyanide to find the ten commendments. The first commandment was when Eve told Adam to eat the apple. The seventh commandment is "Thou shalt not admit adultery". Moses died before he ever reached Canada. Then Joshua led the Hebrews in the battle of Geritol. The greatest miracle in the Bible is when Joshua told his son to stand still and he obeyed him. David was a Hebrew king skilled at playing the liar. He fought with the Finkelsteins, a race of people who lived in Biblical times. Solomon, one of David's sons, had 300 wives and 700 porcupines. When Mary heard that she was the mother of Jesus, she sang the Magna Carta. Then the three Wise Guys from the east arrived and found Jesus in the manager. Jesus was born because Mary had an Immaculate Contraption. St. John, the blacksmith, dumped water on his head. Jesus enunciated the Golden Rule, which says do one to others before they do one to you. He also explained that "Man does not live by sweat alone". It was a miricle when Jesus rose from the dead and managed to get the tombstone off the entrance. The people who followed Jesus were called the 12 decibles. The epistles were the wives of the apostles. One of the opossums was St. Matthew who was also a taximan. St. Paul cavorted to Christianity. He preached the holy acrimony, which is another name for marriage. A Christian should have only one spouse. This is called monotony.

THE BOMBS ARE GUARANTEED TO ALWAYS HIT THE GROUND." - USAF Ammo Troop "IF THE ENEMY IS IN RANGE, SO ARE YOU." - US Army Infantry Journal "A SLIPPING GEAR COULD LET YOUR M203 GRENADE LAUNCHER FIRE WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT.

  48. Yes, it was an interesting article. Thanks for sharing. I'm glad he didn't publish the location. As usual, I found some mistakes in it. For one, there are/were no fighters based at Mildenhall. I've read that the fighters scrambled were from Lakenheath. Don R.

  50. Fuel nozzle leakage. New Engines or those with newly overhauled fuel nozzles sometimes experience this. We found that our overhaul facility was not doing all the checks on the nozzles they were sending us, so we were getting back nozzles that would lead around the head and make the air-conditioning smell really bad.
