  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.
  2. hehe

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
  15. Think what you want Shakespeare. The article is from 2005 which is probably around the time you lost your relevancy on the subject. Even Js are already getting replacement wings bud. To the original poster, contact a Rolls Royce facility or MRO. Like I said before, saying something can work verse approving you to do it are not the same thing.
  16. Its bated......but here is an article to keep you entertained in the wait. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.sikorskyaerospace.com/content/dam/lockheed-martin/aero/documents/sustainment/csc/service-news/sn-mag-v21-v30/V30N02.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjg-43Lu6DqAhWlJzQIHQZrACs4ChAWMAF6BAgFEAE&usg=AOvVaw185m2aY2D85o0JddOqTh_1 To say you could bolt -15s on a -7 equipped aircraft might have been true in 1970s but not now........
  17. No one called it 14852, I worked on that plane and deployed with it multiple times, it was just 4852, sure technically its 14852 and I'm sure you'll reference Lars book. Dont bother, I took over Lars work and updated it to 2020. I'm well aware of it. But anyway The discussion was -15 verse wing. That's why I referenced 4852. I'll pull engineering drawings and make sense of it when I get the time.
  18. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.lockheedmartin.com/content/dam/lockheed-martin/aero/documents/sustainment/csc/service-news/sn-mag-v21-v30/V26N01.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwj73-Kx85_qAhV_Ap0JHcfhBtEQFjAAegQIBRAC&usg=AOvVaw3JtEhE5zCcv8aDtJaLYXBK I disagree with your statement on wings. There are most definitely differences in center wing boxes. The first T-56-15 and H-model was 64-4852. If you look up the wing box part numbers, 4852 starts a new part number compared to the E right before it. There many variants of the wing boxes. A Talon 2
  19. Ok. So you are looking to install your -15 cores into some spare -7 nacelles. Not sure what country you are in but you are gonna want to get some engineers or Rolls Royce repair facilities involved. Saying something will work and giving you approval to do so are two different things.
  20. Weren't they able to bolt the -15s up because they had purchased H-model wings? I need to dig through some files to be sure but I thought you HAD to have a certain wing configuration to have -15s
  21. Or are you asking to take the internal engine and move it from one nacelle to another nacelle? That one would be hard to answer without having all the nacelle drawings and you would be best contacting Rolls Royce or an approved overhaul facility to answer that one.
  22. Pretty sure you have to upgrade the wings to do that conversion. Not something you could just do if you had some -15 engines laying around. Contact the South African Air Force and see what they did. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.defenceweb.co.za/aerospace/aerospace-aerospace/small-investment-could-see-saaf-c130-fly-to-2030/amp/
  23. Lockheed has called it the Herk, with a K, or Herky since at Least 1976. There might be earlier references to that name but I know for sure they were publicly calling it Herk in 1976.
