    Talking Fast jet ain't everything!

    A C-130 was en route on a mission when a cocky F-16 pilot flew up next to
    him.

    The fighter jock told the C-130 pilot, "watch this!" He went into a Barrel
    roll, followed by a steep climb, then finished with a sonic boom when he
    reached the speed of sound.

    The F-16 pilot asked the C-130 pilot what he thought.

    The C-130 pilot responded "that was impressive, but watch this."

    The C-130 droned along for about 15 minutes then the 130 pilot came back on
    and said
    "What did you think about that?"

    The F-16 pilot asked, "what did you do?"

    The C-130 pilot responded "I got up, stretched my legs, went to the back,
    poured a cup of coffee and peed."

    The best 130 ride I was ever on was when I was a pax in my old ANG unit's HC-130 as it left Iraqi airspace.....oh my what a nice ride!

    I had some fun too over the mountains of AZ making calls in the bubble of a C-130 against F-16's while at the Advanced Airlift Tactics Training Center.

    My nephew flew as an Enlisted Navigator in USMC KC-130's His squadron had a similar incident with a Harrier pilot. The Smart A-- Harrier Jockey danced that amazing aircraft all around. When he was done , The 130 Driver said something to the effect of, "You Done?". The Jet Jockey replied in the affirmative and the Lumbering Behemoth's driver told him to go look at the back of the 130. When the Harrier did, he was treated to the sight of the Back Ramp Down and open with two young Marines lounging in beach chairs, drinking a soft drink.

    Nice!!! Those Herky-Birds are workhorses. We surely got more than our money's worth with those planes. I hope to see them working hard for another 50 years!
