There was a particular flight where I was glad I had a parachute on. Turned out unnecessary, but still...

They perform or have performed pretty much most every aviation mission the DoD has with them. That is a fair statement.

They have to be at or within spitting distance of the most number of sub-mission designations an airframe has received.

Thread fail. This thread is like trying to agree on the best song ever. You need to narrow it down. At least Military / Commercial.

Cause, I could say B-52 and be more right than you.....and stuff.

Your declarative statement is missing an important modifying adjective that would allow the statement to possibly be true.

Twat do you mean?

The C130 including all if its variants are more rugged and capable than any other aircraft. Ya, B52s are better at bombing, but that's pretty much all they can do. 130s can do a list of stuff.

It could be argued that a C-130 dropping a MOAB is as badass as a B-52 dropping its load.

By that you mean that the -135, which I have yet to see refuel any helos inflight, or land on unimproved landing strips to refuel trucks and tracks, or helos and fast movers, like the -130 also does regularly ;-)

You are correct about the LE pins. spent many an hour in the Texas sun on a B-1 stand with a wheel chock bangin' away till I couldn't lift it even one more time!
Had a Brutha in B Section get a finger ripped-off (left the bones still attached) by running afoul of troop door cable. GO TO BENCH STOCK AND GET A "C" CLAMP, NUMBNUTS!!!

I would give everything I have to do just one more Assault Landing on a dirt runway.

Fell in love with My Girlz back in 1982 when I hit the Dyess Fight Line.

Can't wait to see a C130J "Super Hercules". Those new twin-shaft engine with their light-weight propellers have made it an all-new Acft.

To think that My Girlz are now over 40 years old an 8 of them are now 220 miles north of Me in Great Falls! Gotta go pay them a visit this spring! I haven't seen 74-1688 for 29 years.
I'd bawl like a Baby if Christine (74-2063) is there.

I think 1688 and 2063 are at Yokota now with 1666, 2061, and 2065


I know that 1597 and 1598 are at Great Falls. 1675 was given to the Afghan Air Force

My dad loved his!!!

He was a crew chief in Nam 67-68. He would look for downed pilots through a plexiglass window in the floor. I could have told you the model and his base before my stroke in 2010. Now, I am just .

Wish I could remember, he died in 2002 from liver cancer.

Its always better to screw your way around, than to suck and blow!

add:
-"Daisy Cutter" bomber to its list of chores
-hellfire launch platform (marines)
-carry two "little birds" far behind the front lines
-land and take off from a carrier with no assistance
-can be equipped with skis
-flying tv broadcaster
-flying radio station

*float plane? not yet. (I have seen a DC3 equipped with floats and upgraded to turbo-props)

I have worked on: A,B,E, Super E, H1,H2 (from a Slick, to the Talon1,Talon2,Shadow,Gunboat and that funky Antarctic Ski bird)

So I am just a lil bit biased

Lockheed did some preliminary work on float kits or even an amphib version but there weren't any takers.
