  1. This is for -7 engine This is for -15 engine
  2. https://www.theage.com.au/national/nsw/air-tanker-fighting-bushfires-reportedly-crashes-in-snowy-mountains-20200123-p53u3r.html?fbclid=IwAR3FAe-8hAy_pryivcTGMSgPMvGAdkNZ9sASunZ-_I3EnIEpbzPzFsombX0
  3. Dont forget about the 6 L100-30s and the 4 L382C/C130 of the Saudi Airforce.
  4. C130, tail number 403, has crashed at Goma, DRC. All on board ok. Still waiting for more info
  5. Engine will be cold at 1st start making harder for starter to turn engine. Also FCU will be cold making CIT and CIP bellows respond differently. 2nd and 3rd start components, gearbox etc. will still be warm and make spin-up easier. Adjusting TD amp will make little difference as it is only limiting the maximum fuel flow during startup. I see this regularly on both A15 and D22A engines. As long as start TIT is between 750 and 830 (780 to 810 desired) and start time is between 39 and 61 seconds (GTC/APU start), there is nothing to be concerned about.
  6. Merry Christmas, may it be safe and blessed

    C130H TILT

    Had it translated, Peter, I think he mixed up with different things: translation: the plane leand left, engines are at 19600lbs, brake applied... 3 services shock absorbers serviced, brake lock pressure ok... Dissymetrie fuel checked with manual and ok.. Do you have a solution or experience? As I understand it: during runup with engines at 19600"lb, aircraft was left wing low. Fuel quantity balance was manually/dipstick checked ok. struts were serviced/checked 3 times. brake pressures ok.
  8. C2 inspection would be my best guess. Its all in card C37
  9. yes, thats it. if your rpm flux is only +-0.5 you appear to be within limits. however, if the crew is uncomfortable you will have to do something. out of curiousity, did you do a fuel governing and pitchlock check?
  10. if by weather you mean cloud or rain, changes in air density going into compressor will be detected by fcu cip & cit probes. as the throttle is already pulled back, a weak valve housing may not be able to hold the rpm steady. 1c-130h-2-71jg-00-1 gives rpm 1.5% total travel with throttle below flight idle, and 1.0% with throttle above x-over and more than 8000"lb torque. valve housing change is the quicker fix, but you may end up changing fcu. as an after-thought, check the time on dome quad-seals.
