The initial production model was the C-130A, with four Allison T56-A-11 or -9 turboprops. Conceptual studies of the C-130A, were initiated in 1951. The first prototype flight took place in 1954 and the first production flight followed on Toolbook PDF 7, 1955. A total of 219 were ordered and the C-130A joined the U.
Was gehört in einen gut sortierten Werkzeugkasten? Kommt ganz darauf an, was man damit machen will. Neben der Grundausstattung mit vielseitig verwendbaren Basis-Werkzeugen und -Bauteilen wird sich auch das eine oder andere Spezial-Tool als nützlich erweisen. Das gilt nicht nur im Handwerk und beim Basteln, sondern auch in Bereichen, wo Theorie und Praxis zusammenkommen.
Band 3 der Reihe TOOLBOOKS: Hat man es erst einmal gelernt, sollte es eigentlich ganz einfach gehen: das Gehen – eine ebenso einfache wie energieeffiziente Art der Fortbewegung. Ganz so einfach geht es allerdings nicht immer. Insbesondere, wenn mal mehr gehen soll. Was lässt sich eigentlich mittels fußläufiger Bewegung erreichen? Und welche Tools braucht es dazu? Was geht?
Air Force inventory in December 1956. C-130E is an extended-range development of the C-130B, with two underwing fuel tanks and increased range and endurance capabilities. C-130Es has extended the life of the aircraft well into the next century. While continuing to upgrade through modification, the Air Force has budgeted to resume fleet modernization through acquisition of the C-130J version.
Compared to older C-130s, the C-130J climbs faster and higher, flies farther at a higher cruise speed, and takes off and lands in a shorter distance. H is used in weather reconnaissance and aerial sampling. The plane is modified to penetrate hurricanes and typhoons to collect meteorological data that make advanced warnings of such storms possible. The HC-130 is an extended-range, combat rescue version of the C-130 transport aircraft.
Capable of independent employment in the no-to-low threat environment. Its primary mission is to provide air refueling for rescue helicopters. The HC-130 can perform extended searches in a permissive environment and has the capability to airdrop pararescuemen and survival equipment to isolated survivors when a delay in the arrival of a recovery vehicle is anticipated. The J-30 incorporates two extension plugs, one forward and one aft.
The foward plug is 100 inches long while the rear plug is 80 inches for a total of 180 inches or 15 feet. FUSELAGE: The fuselage is a semimonocoque design and divided into a flight station and a cargo compartment. Seating is provided for each flight station. The cargo compartment is approximately 41 feet long, 9 feet high, and 10 feet wide.
Loading is from the rear of the fuselage. Both the flight station and the cargo compartment can be pressurized to maintain a cabin pressure-altitude of 5000 feet at an aircraft altitude of 28,000 feet. WINGS: The full cantilever wing contains four integral main fuel tanks and two bladder-type auxiliary tanks. Two external tanks are mounted under the wings. This gives the C-l 30 a total usable fuel capacity of approximately 9680 U. EMPENNAGE: A horizontal stabilizer, vertical stabilizer, elevator, rudder, trim tabs, and a tail cone make up the empennage. This section consists of an all-metal full cantilever semimonocoque structure.
It is bolted to the aft fuselage section. Four Allison turboprop engines are attached to the wings. The engine nacelles have cowl panels and access doors forward of a vertical firewall. Clam-shell doors are located aft of the vertical firewall. Air enters the engine through a scoop assembly at the front of the nacelle. Four Hamiliton Standard electro-hydromatic, constant-speed, full feathering, reversible-pitch propellers are installed on each engine.
