  4. I think you may have looked at table A2.3 for crew positions. Table A2.2 reads as follows: Authorized Mission Symbols (Note: Only mission symbols listed in this table are valid. In ARMS the mission symbol is a five-character field. The first two characters must be IAW this table. MAJCOMs may assign additional characters as required (see Notes 1 and 2 at end of table). CA, CC, Air Rescue CF Coded Aircraft Missions, and TF Coded Aircraft Missions as applicable A1 Scheduled Flights. Missions where the main goal is to move cargo or passengers on a scheduled frequency. A4 Nonscheduled Logistics. Missions where the main goal is to move cargo or passengers on other than scheduled flights. A5 Positioning or Repositioning. The nonproductive part of a flight that is required to locate an aircraft at a station for onloading or returning an aircraft to home station. T2 Formal Major Weapon System (MWS) Training. Instruction and training of pilots and crews undergoing initial MWS crew training in designated Formal Training Units. O3 Aircraft Delivery.

  13. The Herks were out of MSP. We do drops mostly at Badger DZ on Ft McCoy, then go do some pro work at Volk Field. Every now and then, we schedule drops at Hardwood so we can pratice shooting off defensive flares.

  15. There was actually 2 places to set the IFF Mode codes in the E's. The Mode 4 was set in the avionics rack by the crew door using the big black keyer that had a bunch of slide pins that corresponded to the COMSEC tapes. In the hog trough was where the 4 digit IFF mode1 code was set. The SKE code was the 2 digit code between 01 and 33 that was assigned as the SKE formation position number. That was on the old SKE. The new E-SKE and IFF codes are all loaded on the flight deck.

  17. MSP has 92 year group H3's.
  18. The EC-130 was heading out over the pond when the #3 prop seperated from the #3 engine. It then struck the #4 prop, causing the #4 RGB to rotate 90 degrees. The crew landed at Pease AFB, NH after dumping fuel. Landing on the 11,000 foot runway at PSM, the aircraft was stopped by brakes halfway down the runway. All four main tires deflated because of the overheated brakes. The #3 prop was located some time later in the woods of Maine.

  22. FAR 61.73 was ammended in August. Here's an extract of part 61.73. Quick version: Take the FAA Knowledge Test for the rating you want (Commericial or CFI), bring the results and the latest military check ride results to the FSDO, and you'll get the rating added to your ticket. BONUS: If you have an expired CFI rating, you can bring just the checkride results to the FSDO and get your CFI renewed!
  23. For those wondering where 64-0539 is now, it has been at Minneapolis for a few years. It was sent here with the intention of being a "Herk on a Stick". All it has done is to shuffle back and forth from the AFRC ramp to the ANG ramp.
