  1. Ok, well I have to admit I don’t remember Herk in my early C-130 career....but, I do know that wouldn’t be the only thing I wasn’t aware of! Thanks for the info hehe. ok, now I can redirect my grumpiness to something else!
  2. So when did the spelling (or in this case the abbreviation) for Hercules change?? I don’t remember the alternate spelling showing up until roughly when the J started showing up. Is this coincidental ,or do I just hate the J that much? Or, am I just getting too old & grumpy?? I thought each generation was supposed to get smarter than the previous...
  3. Does your Herc have the full comm panel in the back? If so, make sure the selector switch (wafer) is on INT, or that you have INT button pulled up. Seems maybe too simplistic, but you have to start simple sometimes.
  4. Love that they show the old E model! 61st was my first flying squadron!
  5. Congratulations USAF! Only 20 or so years behind the Navy on this one....waaayyyy overdue!
  6. I remember a very good restaurant we called "The Log", but maybe only because it had a large log out front that was made a bench. Think it's actually called Der Gundhof. I know we walked through some small gate out the backside somewhere. One of the best steaks I've had in my life!
  7. But, if you end up operating that engine in NULL, it WILL overtemp, maybe over-torque. Like always, if operating in NULL (or not), you must very carefully watch for this when advancing the throttles.
  8. I know most of you have read the Talon raid on USS Nimitz story. That involved LMs sitting on the ramp.
  9. Nice camera angle makes it look truly like it went inverted. Folks on the ground there say it didn't quite get there.
  10. A system failure on all 4 props at once....you're talking probability numbers to the 20th or 30th decimal! I would discount that possibility...or, go get a lottery ticket! What was the aircraft speed when beta was selected?? And, what do you refer to by:

    If you're operating the aircraft, then you will find the ACN in the flight manual.
  12. WTF is a C130J helicopter turbofan engine?
