  1. On the ABCCC mission out of Vietnam we flew 12 hours flying circles. I did sleep some times
  2. I know that most FE and LM has flown the ci30. I will tell my story. we were coming back from the shuttle to CRB one night and the pilot wanted to do some touch and goes. He asked me and the load master to get in the pilot seat he got in the co pilot seat so I got in and gave it a try. I did 4 or 5 . I know the pilot really did most of the flying. I did like the go around. the load master got in the seat and he did a lot a lot better than I did
  3. I am a 100% disable vet and also retried Air force and have Tricare for life. last week I was reading in the air force times and saw were a 100%disable vet was told if he went to the VA. for a non service connected disability he would have to pay Tricare for life. I called Tricare for life and they said that was so some law was passed in 2013 I tried to get them to call the VA. They said they would not. I went to the Oklahoma City medical center and asked them about this and they told me they didn't care what Tricare care for life said If I came to the VA for a medical problem I would not have to pay any body. I tried to get them to call Tricare for life and tell they would not. They thought Tricare for life was wrong and told me not to worry about it. Has any of you all heard any thing about this.
  4. Has any of you came close to forgetting the nose gear pin in. I have to say I have once in Vietnam. Just after engine run check before take off I seen the pin on the back of the pilot seat. I told the pilot and got out and removed the pin. the tower called and wanted to know what we were doing the pilot told them we were checking a tire. I had ben flying with the pilot a long time and it didn't seem to bother him but it sure bother me.
  5. I have a DVD about the four horseman also It showed a c130B with 2 jet engines . I was flew the B model for 3 years at Clark and have never seen or heard of a B model with jet engines. has any one seen one.
  6. I was lucky when I left Clark in 71 the SQ gave me records with all the days I was in Vietnam and all the combat missions Iflown and I had many travel voucher. I was a FE in the772 SQ. I am 100% disable after 4 heart heart by passes and rated 70% with PTSD. I still don,t know why I have ptsd
  7. Prop brake. I was taught a little different . I was taught that when you made a windmill taxi start you were in the pitch lock range there fore the prop is pitch locked and the only way it can become un locked is to increase blade angel. and the nts system does that. when decend you have to move the throttles up to stop the native torque some times.
  8. I was reading your post about the prop brake and i thought about another queston. When you do a windmill taxie start you line up prop with cuf. that the puts the prop in the pitch range so the prop is is pitch locked when you start down the runway. how does it get un locked.

    Pay Days

    Last year us retires had to pay taxes on thirteen pay days do we pay on just eleven this year to get even
  10. You people need to move to oklahoma . I filed a claim for agent orange. my heart DR. said i had had 4 by passes I had my claim aproved in about two months.
  11. I was having with-drawal pains I thought we had lost it for ever.There is nothing like talking to another C130 VET no body else would understand.
  12. Ihave been trying ti find herky birds.com for nearly a month and could not find it Ithought shut it down. Why didn't some one tell us about the change.
  13. Dan I always wonder what you looked like. over the years i have read many of your post. You are a mern looking dude. No offence intrnded
  14. I recevied notice from the VA yesterday that i would be getting 100% disibilty for ptsd and ichmeic disease. When 1 added up all my retermets and saw what i would be getting a year I nearly fell out of my chair. Also in OKLA. you don't have to pay proprety tax or sales tax car tags are only 10 dollars and you don't have to pay excise when you buy a car. you get free hunting and fifhing for life.Oklahoma is very good to the 100% disable vets. You people that is fighting the system dont give up. I didn't want a dollar i didn't earn but i wanted ever one i had comming to me. The gave me a choice to use a VA Dr.or a contract DR. I chose a contract DR. If you have choice i would go with contract DR. I had asked my mental helth DR.at the VA if i should file a claim for PDST and he didn'tthink so.
