  1. Canadians operate CC-130J which are basically same as USAF C-130J-30 (stretch slicks). They do not operate CSOs that I am aware and use the standard two pilot / one loadmaster crew. They do some special missions things (roll-on/roll-off type kits) but i don't know how that changes their crew or if it even does.

It talks about cracks in flight. It's what I
  3. hehe


    The heat keeps the window flexible. From what I understood, you keep heat on unless it's arcing to keep the window flexible and not shatter I'll read around my pubs and manuals and see if anything addresses a crack and what to do
  4. I'll take it. Sent you a message
  5. It is starting to annoy me to see how many of these old fuselages are getting shredded. If the base shut down, I understand cutting it up but why not build a $2,000 dollar sun shade for it and leave it parked in the corner. Keep the sun and water off of it and it will last for another 30 years. 5 years from now somebody will be looking to fund a fuselage trainer and you just trashed another one.
  6. True I wondered that afterward as well. I should he able to find his father's crash just need a general idea of what happened.
  7. Your father survived the crash? I am looking but only seeing two Blind Bat crashes. On in 68 and one in November of 1969 (56-0533) and all members died.
  8. Are these for sale? I collect stuff like this, I'll buy em for sure
  9. Yea I get that lol The question is what is the difference in weight of pallet position with or without doors. Or is there a difference
  10. I'm mainly curious about the difference in weight allowed in position 5 with and without paratroop doors Does the door limit the pallet weight or does the dual rail system? I can't wrap my brain around why you would build a rail system that created that limit of 8,500 especially on a brand new J. It seems to me that the paratroop door is the limiting factor hence why they would eliminate them from the L-100 (plus the obvious lack of need on a civilian bird for paratroopers)
  11. Hello, Does anyone have access to the -9 loading manual for an L-100? Looking for weight limitation of pallet position #5 for an L-100 without paratroop doors Is it the same as a C-130 with paratroop doors?
  12. Sorry. Have you done engine runs on the ground and done multiple configurations of power levels to get the plane to shake on the ground? Or have you done a full shakedown of the wiring while someone watches the system?
  13. Have you done ground power runs to see if you can duplicate it?
  14. I wish I had a good phone number for a Rolls Royce rep or MRO in your country that could help. If you can't find someone, you can always call the Lockheed Hercules Help Line at 770-494-9131 They should be able to at least get you in contact with someone or maybe even provide guidance on your engine nacelle swap Best of luck to you
