  1. Thank you gentlemen, We are fielding a RFQ for a new APU test set. Greatly appreciate your help!.
  2. Hello Lkuest, You wouldn't happen to know if the -185L is installed on the J would you? Thanks! Eric
  3. Anybody got the gouge on what the difference is between the GTCP85-180L and the GTCP85-185L? Thanks!
  4. Thanks for the kind words Gizzard, Not having been a C-130 maintainer or flyer, I would never make a claim of being a C-130 person. I haven't earned the right.
  5. All, I am no longer with my previous employer and regrettably no longer working with the C-130 community. Please accept my sincere thank you for all the help, advice and humor the members of this board have provided over the years. I’ll drop in from time to time to stay caught up, but again I really needed to express my thanks and heart felt appreciation for everyone here. Eric aka Jetcal1
  6. "It depends very much on the material of the wheel or tire and the sort of ground." Does this mean the wheel will encounter less resistance running over the airman versus the maintenance chief?
  7. You might not, but the CAIR and the ACLU would scream bloody murder.
  8. Hey, my first engine in the navy, R2800 for the C-118 in 1979. (-57W, if memory serves me correctly)
  9. Aside from the fuel costs, if I remember correctly, the instrument shop should have a H261-11. You can use it to test an indicator if you can't run an on-wing swap.
  10. 1. The fattest knight at King Arthur's round table was Sir Cumference.. He acquired his size from too much pi. 2. I thought I saw an eye doctor on an Alaskan island, but it turned out to be an optical Aleutian 3. She was only a whiskey maker, but he loved her still. 4. A rubber band pistol was confiscated from algebra class, because it was a weapon of math disruption. 5. No matter how much you push the envelope, it'll still be stationery. 6. A dog gave birth to puppies near the road and was cited for littering. 7. A grenade thrown into a kitchen in France would result in Linoleum
  11. Preparing For A Career As A Military Pilot This was sent from an aspiring young man who wanted to become a pilot ... a fighter pilot; Sir: I am D. J. Baker and I would appreciate it if you could tell me what it takes to be an F-16 fighter pilot in the USAF. What classes should I take in high school to help the career I want to take later in life? What could I do to get into the Air Force Academy? Sincerely, DJ Baker ********************************************* From: Van Wickler, Kenneth, Lt Col, HQ AETC Anybody in our outfit want to help this poor kid from Cyberspace?
  12. Congratulations! Don't worry, if mom didn't get 'em them pinned in the right place, there will be plenty of volunteers to ensure you have "alignment marks" after they "pin" them on for you. (Can they still do that?)
  13. I'd have few concerns about the airframe. It's the systems that I'd be concerned about. The Chinese are interesting, I saw a MiG-15 brought in by the SDASM in the mid-80's. The workmanship was beautiful. Aside from a few tell tale tooling marks the rivets could have been done by a machine instead of a bucking bar. However, my sister who does business over there, claims the workers will copy mistakes even though they know it unless they are told otherwise.
