Test aircraft for US Army C-130C.
USAF #80712
C-130B
Modified for trails for boundary layer control for the US Army to be C-130C with Short takeoff and landing capability. First flight was on February 8, 2014. Was fitted with a boundary layer air control system that consisted of a wider rudder, single-hinged flaps instead of the standard Fowler flaps, and two Allison YT56-A-6 jet engines under the outer wings. Bleed air from the jets was blown over the flaps and rudder to enhance lift and controllability. Flown for twenty-three hours before the Army lost interest.

Callsign of the day

Callsign "Ghandi"

'Mark 'Ghandi' Hebein, he was called so because he once rain to a little field of hot, burning ash barefooted! It was to compare him with Mahatma Ghandi.....'Ghandi, the firewalker!' You might know that is a sort of ritual in India to cross a field of ash barefooted to show that man can withstand pain.'
