  1. What early C-130 systems had vacuum tubes?
  2. “Some predict that the C-130 will continue to operate well into the 21st century…”
  3. Naha FB group, I just found this a couple of weeks ago. For those of us who were stationed at Naha AB you may want to check this out and consider joining the group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/73013675579 Bob Podboy 374th Jet MX

  10. Kit Up.... post-production enhancement C-130 MICROVANES® Lockheed Martin has conducted extensive studies to reduce C-130 fuel consumption. Microvanes have proven to be the most cost effective improvement, as they are low cost to manufacture and procure, easy to install and provide significant fuel savings of more than 3 percent on average. The C-130’s at cargo ramp and door give it an exceptional airdrop capability. However, this same feature creates a significant amount of drag due to the abrupt change in air flow from the sides to the ramp/ door. Drag and fuel usage are di
