Flightline Operations

SOUTHWEST ASIA -- An airfield emergency response team quickly responds to an in-flight emergency involving a C-130E Hercules aircraft here Oct. 19. The C-130J is the latest addition to the C-130 fleet and will replace aging C-130Es. The C-130J incorporates state-of-the-art technology to reduce manpower requirements, lower operating and support costs, and provides life-cycle cost savings over earlier C-130 models. Compared to older C-130s, the J model climbs faster and higher, flies farther at a higher cruise speed and takes off and lands in a shorter distance. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
