    Dude, that sucks. That window is a bitch to change. That, and that is one hell of a mess to clean up.

    not more than a month ago we were going through birds at least one a day. Most of them where just strikes, with the bird bouncing or glancing off, but they did manage a hole in one right into the flight deck refer pack intake...it smelled so bad.

    if that were my plane I think it would be a great time to get rid of that 70's green color, and black out the flight deck.

    paint covers a multitude of sin.

    I almost spit oreos on my keyboard when I read this. :rofl:


    Was the eagle hit by the prop? I would think that if it had hit the plane head first the front end (of the eagle) wouldn't have remained intact.

    Hey Missilman-every year the Blue Angels do their show out here in San Francisco and I almost never get a chance to get out to the bay to see it but the one time I did, they had a C-130 doing some pretty awsome low flyby's and pretty extreme moves for a plane that big. I thought it was as much a kick to see as the fighters.

    Yeah man, Fat Albert does some wicked poop! My favorite part is the JATO take-off!
    I'll have to find some pictures. Thanks

    Yea, JATO take-offs are always fun to see, not many people ever get the chance to see it, or feel it (It really does not have the "kick" you would expect - at least when taking off on snow it doesn't). We do open snow landings, and even on the groomed snow runways the snow can be sticky enough to keep us on the ground, sometimes adding 8000 lbs of thrust for 15 seconds is all you need, but adding power is only half the battle, its a timing thing as well, hit it too early and you wasted it, adding it too late and it does the same thing. C-130's (AKA F-130) can yank and bank more than you would expect. The plane is very maneuverable for its size. After we had been dropped off at our remote site for a aircraft recover school, the plane turned around, and buzzed us at about 300 feet screaming, then it was gone...and you realized you where in the middle of no where, with no way to leave. Only other plane I would want to work on in the military is probably the A-10.

    Back on topic, no way the bird hit the prob, would have been bits 'n pieces and if it was an inboard prop the blood spray would have been on the fuselage most likely. That bird kamikazed itself right into that window, it may have hit the radome and tumbled into hitting it from the side which could explain why the head is so well intact.

    After thaught, I bet Fat albert is light as hell, I mean, it definately doesnt have a full load of fuel, cargo, or pax. So when hes rolling down the nice paved (low resistance) runway, and hits those JATO's, they probably feel it cause relatively speaking they are light.

    haha, yea she wont get you there fast, but she will get you there - thats for sure. the width inside the cargo compartment is just about perfect for most hammocks fyi - there are two yellow support braces just aft of where the end of the ramp is closed, two cargo straps and a hammock later and your snoozin in style.
