just letting yall know

Leaving for San Antonio, TX tomorrow. Boeing is modifying one of our aircraft with the new AMP mod. (first one in Air Force inventory) On its final test flight had a major malfunction with the landing gear. So I am going out there to replace a gear box. Ill try to get as many pics as I can, but unknowing of how Boeing will react to a camera, I might only be able to get ones from out on the town. Non of the typical site seeing things though (like the Alamo or Riverwalk). I lived there for 6 years, I dont plan on going to any of them, just hanging out with a few friends I havent seen in a long time. So I doubt ill be online at all. Just wanted to let yall know.

Re: just letting yall know

haha no. But the AMP mod is a fancy mod.

They are taking C-130H2s and retrofitting them with glass cockpits. (basically taking analog guages and replacing them with all digital displays, gps, etc like the C-130J models.) And a few other misc things like antennas etc. it stands for avionics modernization program

here is a link to the Boeing story on the plane
Boeing: Boeing Flies C-130 AMP Aircraft for First Time
here is a pic of our bird

Re: just letting yall know

Actually the AMP program was Lockheed Martins which Boeing stole when Darlene A. Druyun, AirForce assistant Secetary illegally gave the contract to Boeing in return gave her daughter, son in law and herself a VP job for the contracts she gave to Boeing including AMP, Delta Rocket, Satellite Launch business and the Boeing tanker lease deal and many more programs during the Clinton Adminstration. She has cost Boeing 100,000,000,0000 in lost revenue do to cancellation of many programs. Amp was one that they did not take away because it was currently in work.

Re: just letting yall know

Lockheed still has a hand in the program though...one of the guys in my shop is a project manager at Lockheed.
