    Talking F-16 vs C130

    Got this in an email...

    A C-130 was lumbering along when a cocky F-16 flashed by.
    The jet jockey decided to show off.

    The fighter jock told the C-130 pilot, 'watch this!' and promptly
    went into a barrel roll followed by a steep climb. He then finished
    with a sonic boom as he broke the sound barrier. The F-16 pilot
    asked the C-130 pilot what he thought of that?

    The C-130 pilot said, 'That was impressive, but watch this!'
    The C- 130 droned along for about 5 minutes and then the C-130
    pilot came back on and said: 'What did you think of that?'
    Puzzled, the F-16 pilot asked, 'What the heck did you do?'
    The C-130 pilot chuckled. 'I stood up, stretched my legs, walked
    to the back, went to the bathroom, then got a cup of coffee and a
    cinnamon bun.'

    Thanks JD

    That put a smile on my face.

    Nice! Here's another:


    A military pilot called ATC for a priority landing because his single-engine jet fighter was running "a bit peaked." ATC told the fighter jock that he was number two behind a B-52 that had one shut down.

    "Ah," the pilot remarked, "the dreaded seven-engine approach!"

    Okay,

    Those were pretty darn good.

    By the title I was expecting to see a pic of two planes on a runway somewhere trying to occupy the same space at the same time. Any one want to speculate on who would win that one?

    Many years ago two F-4 were flying MIG CAP for a B-52, one of the F-4s kept doing areobatic manuvers and asking the B-52 if he can top that. Finally the B-52 called back and said he can do something the F-4 cannot do, after a few minutes the F-4 driver asked when he was going to see the manuver, the B-52 answered back "I just shut-down two engines, now top that".

    The funny thing is I work lots of C-130 traffic and they are required to declair an emergency when they lose an engine. Even though they routinely shut two off in flight to save fuel. The theory is if one engine goes bad it may be a fuel problem and the other three may go at any time.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Funny, I've never heard of this in the C-130 community. If one engine quits, no big deal. If two engines quit, our pucker factor shoots up pretty high.

    We were coming out of Afghanistan one time and had two engines that started acting up a little. By the book, either one by itself was an engine shutdown condition. However, nobody I know would fly the Herk on two engines due to the dismal performance. The engineer (a great guy--he's retired now) said, "We don't know which one's gonna quit first, so we ain't shuttin' down either one while they're still making power."
