  1. Respectfully ask the Cpt. to go to the club and if you need him you'll call.

    HAHA! Everyone got a kick outta that. Thanks for all the suggestions. We are actually downrange at the moment. The reason I asked is because that Capt. is new just got over and wanted some written proof about where and why or why we cant jack. We all, including our supervision agree wholeheartedly with your suggestion for him. We'll take these suggestions and see what we can do...or just jack like everyone else on the ramp...you know the normal way. Thanks again!

  2. Does anyone know where i can find the written procedure for jacking. we have a new Capt. that would like to know what kinds of surface you can jack on (concrete, asphalt,"temporary metal matting" (i know thats a def NO), the maximum slope angle (as i understand it, it needs to be a flat solid surface.) If anyone can provide any assistance in this it would be helpful. We've looked in the job guide, the 91-100, 21-101, 1c-130A-3...nothing

  3. That makes sense I know they are working on a hybrid composite prop with the legacy and the composite because the J props shatter to easy. Will be interesting to see where it all goes. But I think the AC's still have time and won't be going anywhere soon. Ive had the opportunity to work on the Dragon Spear too (recently) and as it comes out of its infantcy it will be a helpful asset

  4. From the AFA news: The Air Force has awarded L-3 Communications a $61 million contract to add a weapons package to eight MC-130W Combat Spear special-mission aircraft to give them a gunship-like attack capability. Under the terms of the deal, L-3 will provide the weapons kits, which are called "precision strike packages," for installation on the aircraft at Warner Robins Air Logistics Center in Georgia. MC-130Ws fitted with the weapons will be known as Dragon Spears. Air Force Special Operations Command is arming these aircraft to relieve the relentless operational demands on its regular AC-130 gunships until new AC-130Js enter the fleet.

    Where is this AC-130J info coming from? The last i heard that and the C-27 project were scrapped due to funding and the J model not being able to support the structual demands by the guns....
