The aircraft will provide enhanced airlift capability, and with the refueling capability, add significant operational flexibility by extending the range of Kuwait’s air defense aircraft. The proposed sale of these aircraft will not alter the basic military balance in the region. The principal contractor will be Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company in Marietta, Ga.

  16. While in the 7SOS in Germany we were checking out an FE to be a FCF/FE. Now the bird we were flying was G-2-G and did not require an FCF. When we did the inflight condition lever to ground stop procedure two of the props started to go to feather -- back to run and everything was ok. Back on the ground we wrote everything up. Now this pissed off the MAC maintenance NCOIC big time! Before I could get back to Bldg 152 our squadron. The boss had already been called by the DCM raising hell about us doing an FCF on a good aircraft. He was especially upset with the inflight ground stop procedure and demanded I return to maintenance to sign of the write up as "entered-in-error". When I got to the DCM's office I was meet by him and the NCOIC. They explained to me that it was "perfectly normal and nothing was wrong the props" and I could "legally" sign them off. I said sure show me in 0020-5 how to sign them off but then I would have to write up the other two props as bad as they didn't try to go to feather. The NCOIC turned beat red and the DCM told me to "get the f$$k out of my office". Later my CC told me that I need to try to be more diplomatic with an O6 and senior NCO.
