Let's chase this Air-Traffic-Count tangent for a moment.frank, seems like 16.000 in the air global. crazy!
There are tons of videos on YouTube showing several different Thrust Reversing Technologies. Check 'em out!
One of those videos even describes what happens if the Thrust Reverser(s) is/are deployed IN FLIGHT. . . . . .
I attempted to find the max allowable crosswind component from the POH but there is only one of these aircraft and I have yet to find the POH.Landing that airframe in a cross-wind must be a pilots's nightmare.
I had seen still photos of this aircraft before, and I thought it was a hoax. But this is a really interesting and eye opening video.How's this for a slightly modified C-130..... with STOL capabilities!
That GIF caused me to search YouTube for more footage.....
Why would you jump out of a perfectly good aircraft?!You would like the 119 and 130 and 141 and helicopters especially if you made night jumps from them.
Kind of gives one movies in the head for memories.
