My uncle Chief Petty Officer Bob Jones was the Avionics Chief on The Blue Angles C-130 in the 1970 and 1980s

Was not The Blue Angles C-130s that carried the maintenance crew and other operational navy personnel call sign "Navy One"?

No. The "One" callsign is reserved for aircraft carrying the President of the United States of America.

Hope it gets put in a museum. Awesome plane.

My understanding it will be a ground trainer @ Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base

Oh ok..

An old H model 130, simple airplane same basic design that was built for 50 years, the only real thing that you have to monitor on the fuselage is the center wing which has a tendency to develop cracks over time plus some problems with the hot air deicing system.

Two questions that I would appreciate someone to answer: (a) Are there not enough surplus C-130s at Davis-Montham which can be refurbished as required and costing less than buying one from the RAF. (b) Has the reasons for the crash of the Marine KC-130T in Mississippi been established yet. RIP.
Thank you.

Hate to see it go, but is understandable. It is a pressurized a/c that builds lots of cycles. I would rather see this than to see it suffer structural fail in front of fans.... Would not be a good event.

Why get a replacements C 130J from Brits Columbia. They make them hear in the U.S.

If I was reading that right.

um... the RAF. Getting a second hand one will be faster and cheaper than new.

True, but the US Military owns a bunch of them so the essential question remains. We already have them so...?
Mikedryden
At a guess... the US military wants to use theirs. The RAF possibly has some excess capacity as A-400Ms come on line. And the MOD could probably do with the cash. Pure speculation on my part.
siriusloon
The RAF wants to get rid of its shorter Hercules C5s (C-130J) and standardise on the longer C4 (C-130J-30) and A400M.

Second-hand aircraft are cheaper than new-builds made "hear" (or anywhere else). By the way, British Columbia is a Canadian province and doesn't have an air force.

Facts...they're easy to find when you're already online.
