  1. Its so you can check your hair and your shades before stepping out the crew entrance door.
  2. -7 and -17 engines differ in that the turbine section is 3 stage (-7) versus 4 stage in newer versions cant really see any difference from the ground. E models typically have a/c unit scoops flush to the right side fuselage along with a gtc with clam shell doors by the left wheel well. Most H and up models have an a/c scoop that sticks out of the fuselage and right wheel well fairing along with an apu in place of the gtc that has a flap like panel that opens up at an angle when it's operating. And to further confuse you different services have their own avionics set ups.
  3. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/chile-plane-missing-human-remains-and-debris-c-130-hercules-air-force-plane-today-2019-12-12/ Unfortunate, Bird is former KC130R 160628. RIP to crew and pax.
  4. I cant help you with the black box it's an Air Force specific system, The Hydraulic panel is the control panel for the aft cargo door and ramp. Are you putting together your own air craft?

  6. I think he spent too much time on the wash rack.
  7. That you Festus? Condolences for your brother
  8. Best seat in the house! Now some do gooder will probably publish some regulations against it.
  9. New paint scheme? That could be dressed up nice with some contrast markings.
  10. And the old girl is pretty much Marine proof!
  11. Christmas weekend 1982 got hit with the duty section and was given a back to back wash-rack to stay busy with. Kinda took the bloom off of my holiday spirit. Merry Christmas all!
  12. The syntax reads like it was translated form English to Thai and back to English.
  13. I know some of those faces, when did we get old looking?
  14. It's pretty much weight dependent. Airshow take offs and climb outs are usually done with minimum fuel and cargo. A bird maxed out with cargo and/or fuel is going to take off using more runway and and a shallower climb out.
  15. Good article, I did notice that there where no stats for the H-34 in helo losses.
  16. Brochure was pretty straight forward (not trying to pick on the OP) to me. Basically higher output bleed air, ATM and motor eliminated and larger capacity generator mounted on the unit. Replacing the GTC with an APU more or less. Both of those exec's on the brochure are former C 130 Marines
  17. Randie, if you go to the database page and look up the EC 130 Q that may help you out some. Tanker 131 is a former US Navy bird.
  18. http://www.wcvb.com/article/us-drops-largest-non-nuclear-bomb-on-afghanistan-battlefield-military-sources-say/9272073 All I can say is BOOOM!
  19. https://www.facebook.com/365811193449289/photos/a.387891491241259.92571.365811193449289/1107237205973347/?type=3&theater
  20. Looks like a SKE fairing on top of the fuselage. Marine birds had a different fairing up there
