That is unreal. They sound awesome in real life, too. That brrrrmmm sound is cool.

My Father in Law's favorite variant is the one with all the big guns that flies in a circle and makes everything inside that circle disappear.

I just bug out on all aircraft.

Peace,
Robert

For a time they were considering using the 130 as a COD. I love seeing the Blue Angels 130 "Fat Albert" joins the show.

Thanks for posting, Dave!

C-130s fly out of our local air base and I get to see them at low altitude quite a bit and I agree.

Kevin,

We get the military jobs some, and the air attack fire fighting variant. The fire planes often scrape our roof, it seems, geez my eyeballs rattle sometimes.

Gosh, it's a cool noise.

Peace,
Robert

We get a mixture of C17 and C130, love them both. A C5 came in for the McChord open house. Low and slow over the house. The dogs went crazy.

One anecdote I experienced occurred the night TWA Flight 800 went down just offshore of here. Myself and three buddies, along with numerous other private boaters, headed out the inlet toward the crash site to try and find survivors. When we started out, we set our course to the glow of the ocean that was ablaze some miles distant. But then the flames went out.

Then a C130 flew up low, and from astern of us, and as it passed overhead, wagged its wings and dropped a flare. A minute later it dropped another flare. Then another. She brought us right in.

Man. That is terrible, but awesome. Thanks for sharing that cool story. I can imagine how overwhelming it must have been. Sort of bittersweet beauty, eh?

When Obama came out here to visit California, they flew right over our house in those Ospreys. Now THOSE things make a crazy racket and a whump whump on par with those big Chinook helicopters.

I landed in Khe Sanh in one, Before we could gather our gear off the air matting he had turned around and was gone!

Countries are forever pushing the limit of strategic ops, depending on their particular set of contingencies and existing defence infrastructure, as with the C-130 landing on a carrier.

Some are faced with the need to operate heavy miltary transports in inhospitable, dusty, high altitude locations (16,600 ft ?) as on the Indo-China frontier:

One of my fav aircraft. The "whizzing" sound of the props and engines at cruise, with just a touch of turbine whine (i'm 2000 ft below) is mesmerizing.

does that unit still wear skis in the winter? When I flew for business express we used to see them all the time. Schenectady I think it was. . .

eta: disregard, I see your on LI. There is another wing there in Suffolk that refuels those blackhawks. . .

Here is a C-17 Globemaster, which carries 3 x the C-130 payload, validating short field landing at the Eastern most part of the Indo-China frontier.

Yikes, wouldn't want to have multiple landings there.

Am with you on this one ! However, there are flyers, on all sides, who revel in these high-adrenalin undertakings.

I thought "Globemaster" was the name for the C-124 piston engine Transport.

My brother was a crewmember on 130's during his AF career. Her is an excerpt from a post I made some time ago.


I just learned that my late brother was selected as a Distinguished Graduate for 2014 from the High School we all graduated from. Matt spent the majority of his AF career in Special Operations flying in 130's. He was one of "the guys" the AF turned to for many covert operations. During his career he was in Grenada, Panama (Urgent Fury), Desert Storm and Desert Sheild plus a bunch of missions that we still can't talk about today. Matt lost several good friends in Operation Eagle Claw in Iran in April 1980. He was supposed to be on that mission but came down with the flu. Someone was looking over him on that day. Also, Matt's crew was essential to taking out Iraqi radar the night we made the initial attack in Desert Storm.

If the former Globemaster established a good name for itself, it could pop up again, c.f., Chevy Impala (59) which continues till today equipped with new engine mods( EFI and the rest of it) |;)

M-D C17 if memory serves. Seems to me there was a Globemaster II also.

Edit:Sorry, somehow I missed post 19:o

The first USN pilot qualified in the c130 just passed away last month. Buz Dryfoose was also an Operation Deep Freeze pilot and an all around nice guy. I flew on several ski equipped 130s back in the day. A real rush is taking off with jato assist.

Early in my career, I flew with a captain from Rutland, vt. His name was Ron Hebert.

His AF career started in B-50s flying early electronic missions along the iron curtain. He then checked out in the C-130. He had some flights testing the Fulton extraction system, gunships, weather and ending with skis in the artic.

I flew Dhc-6s as his FO based in Rutland. He must be deep into his eighties by now. A good guy. I learned a great deal from him.
