  1. I recently got a few close up shots of Herc 742134, a C130H-LM out of Dyess, assigned to AMC. As is visible in the attached photo, there are a number of pieces sticking out from the side of the a/c (possibly antennas of some kind?), including the landing gear doors. Can someone tell me what they are for. Also, does the suffix LM stand for Lockheed Martin or something else. Thanks Gary Hebbard
  2. I met Walter Cronkite at Goose Bay, Labrador in 1982 or 83 in the USAF officers mess (of which I was an associate member), not long after he retired from TV. He was with a film crew doing a documentary on the Northern Lights and had come Goose for filming (Goose was a great place to see the lights) and crew R&R. He was gracious enough to sign an autograph for my father, who was a big fan. He enjoyed a few drinks and chatted away pleasantly to everyone present. I was, at the time, a young TV newscaster and was more than a little intimidated to be talking to such a lion of the profession but he was the perfect gentleman and treated me as a colleague. One doersn't forget that kind of class, even if (or perhaps because) I am a Canadian. Gary Hebbard St. John's, Newfoundland Canada
