  1. That looks like sheet 1 of 4, I wonder if he looks at sheet 4 may find what he is looking for.
  2. I noticed an Air America type looking herk next to where I work. No tail number, just the N number N2731G above the troop door area. I don't ever remember seeing one like this before, from what I can tell Tepper flys this puppy. I wonder what the chances of me getting on board to look at it? Gary
  3. Zak passed away on Friday from what I understand. Viewing is Tuesday from 2-9pm at E.J. Mandziuk funeral home at 3801 18 Mile rd sterling heights, Mi. Burial is at Great Lakes National Cemetary in Holly, Mi at 1:30pm.
  4. This may not be much help, but I balance helicopter blades and water incursion is a problem. Could you have water or foreign material in it?
  5. Back in 1992 the Peruvian fighters shot down a U.S. C-130. I have noticed there really is not much talk about that.
  6. Too bad you can't pressurize the tank with a mixture of nitrogen and Helium, then get a helium detector and start sniffing. I use one at work, pretty cool system.
  7. If you have one bad and have all the panels off, why not change them all? Might save a lot of grief down the road.
  8. when I was stationed at Elmendorf we had a HC-130 (I think) that did this same thing. We changed all the flex drives...problem solved.
  9. I know the Talon 1's got them in the 7th and I assume the gunships also got them, where any other airframes TCTO'd?
  10. That F-111F motor was cool too bad it liked to throw turbine blades. I had a lot of fun running those motors, by the way you can bang first stage burner without tieing it down, just had to be really carefull. Don't forget to make sure the sp truck isn't behind you. T-56s where fun too.
  11. Casey I am sure you spent a lot hours getting this back up and running. Thanks a lot...by the way I was having withdrawal symptoms and was forced to open up my bottle of crown royal black.
  12. Dam, what did they do to that airplane? Sure didn't look like that at Elemendorf.
  13. As a former crew chief on Triple Nickel I am glad to hear she went to AMARG reluctantly. I sure would like to get a photo of her before she is stripped to a shell.
  14. I remember that plane well, I was at EDF from 82-85 as a crew chief. I never saw one C-130 that spent so much time in fuel cell, I think we tried to get depot to reseal it but it never happened. I do remember the Crew Chief always took good care of that airplane.
  15. I was at Elmendorf from 82-85 and we where probably using those same steel chocks. They worked pretty good, all though I can remember an engine shop guy pushing them out a couple times. I am sure we jumped chocks an easy dozen times while I was there. Hopefully AFSOC will trim the run requirements down some and maybe design some chocks specifically to use in cold and icey conditions along with minimum weight requirements and maybe certifying run crews for the very cold day runs.
  16. Hard to tell but looks like the fuselage a couple feet behind the scanners window is damaged. Hate to be the guys on the engine run. Hope no one got hurt.
  17. I was wondering, are there anymore stories out there similar to the Nimitz.
  18. I have the full story as posted on the old bulletin board, but I would think that Skip might want to personally answer this subject. Maybe we need a war story section on here. Gary
  19. There is in fact a t.o., I remember it when I was in -21 at Dyess back in the 80's. I would think if you call any C-130 -21 shop they could give it to you. Good luck sorry I couldn't be more help.
  20. It was my understanding that the three acft came from Dyess. I was in -21 section then, when we where told in the a.m. to inventory them and they left that afternoon.
  21. here is another pick of the same snake. [img size=499]http://herkybirds.com/images/fbfiles/images/snake1.jpg
  22. I had this emailed to me today thought I would share. This apparently took place in Texas somewhere. Reminds me of my days at Dyess back in the late 70\'s early 80\'s. [img size=499]http://herkybirds.com/images/fbfiles/images/snake2.jpg
  23. I would think a person would need a whole lot more information then what you presented. What system, what problem, what inspection etc.
