The Lockheed C-130 is a great ship. It's been in continuous production since the 1950's. There's almost nothing it can't do. It's been used as a cargo plane, medi-evac, inflight refueler, gunship and a bomber. It'll fly all day with two engines out and land on almost anything, including an aircraft carrier. The Navy's Blue Angels use one as their support plane and it's performance is used in their show. If I had to trust my life to an airplane that's the one I would pick first everytime.

Bass Ackwards - I had to goose it a couple of times and wait a bit before it started working.

 

Cool video though. No doubt the mechanical lady on the onboard navigation system had to change her panties after that run...she was throwing hissy-fits during several maneuvers.

I saw one fly over the treetops last week. I could see everything in detail!! What was weird is we never heard it coming until it was there. Scary. No idea why they were so low. Freaky. :confused:
