    I Retired from the Air Force in 1998 16 years as FE on C130 13 of those years in the 773 and then the 40th at Dyess, then went to Selfridge ANGB, MI for 2 and half as an advisor in the 171st and last year at the Rock in the school house the 62nd. Prior to crosstraining I was C130 crewchief at Hill AFB, and then the move to Kirkland and finally 5 years at Rhien Main. I currently fly Lynden Air Cargo and still enjoy flying the old girl just hate the comute :). Lynden Air Cargo is is a good company to work for if you don't mind being on the road half the year, but with most flying jobs now you will be away from home at most of the time unless you fly locally. I will be in and out of Papua New Guinea the next few years and staying busy.

  1. The Lynden could have posted the correct aircraft and tail # P2-LAC instead canned picture.
  2. Missed the lot details just looked at the pictures and yea whats left of the c130 is ugly and sobering.
  3. The fuselage sitting on wheels is not a c130 in later photos you see the fusalage of the herk burnt black from the crash and all the sheet metal in boxes and engine and a prop. The fusalage on wheels has a swipe wing and there a lot of parts that don't look like herkybirds parts. Any body take a guess what type of acft fusalage they are showing in some of the photos?
  4. Great decals I would love some too
  5. I have few old patches at the house if you want them pass on your address and I will send them to you. Bill
  6. They photo shop paint scheme on the plane and removed the L from the tail. We always have wood floors when flying AdHoc and stell rollors.
  7. Does anyone know if Lockheed is still handing out Safe flying hr. awards pins . While I was in they were still handing the pins out, but I just heard they ended the program a few years ago. I am interested in getting replacement pins and adding a new pin.
  8. I'll check with my Captain he was also taking pictures while we waited to off loaded that first evening. We have flow 4 mission into Haiti and are bringing in another herk from Alaska today after it drops of a Helio in Domican Republic. Yes, it is a mess down there and it does not help when you have Hillary yesterday flying into Haiti and today or tomorrow her husband Bill flys in also. You know what that does to air traffic flow in the air and on the ground. Right now everyone has a slot time before they even depart for Haiti unless the military has priority. I do know anything bigger then a Herk or 727 takes up way to much ramp space even though you can put more on a C17 it still takes up to much ramp just my two cents.
  9. When we landed at 5 pm on the 13th there were two Coast guard herks from Clearwater already on the ramp picking up embassy personnel and one candian herk that just landed before us Icelander Air 757, numerous small acft and a DC-3 with PT-6s. After we had shut down Manisfield landed and came in and off loaded personnel and departed. We brought in the USAID Fair Fax rescue team 1 equipment and couple of personnel the rest of the personnel came in on 737 Miami Air just a few minutes before we landed. Inbound into Port au Prince the controller was doing his best to control the flow of traffic, but everyone was constantly stepping on each other or to low to be heard. I think the guy in the tower controlling everything with what he had a really great job and no radar, before the US took over. The only damage I could see from the airport were numerous cracks in the Terminal and the windows in the tower were all broken and slightly tilted. I admit that us really cannot tell any differance when looking at the houses on approach I guess the only way to tell is be on the ground.
  10. Yea, I agree just a little over kill on the statement when I saw it last night.
  11. Yea, in the picture it appears that #3 prop is feathered.
  12. He will be missed we were in the 773rd and 62nd before he retired great friend and mechanic and he took no BS called it like it was.
  13. So what frame size will it be when done and what would the cost be if I would like to order more.
