Hi, Cliff. Just now got home (7:15 PM) from a very long and super busy day of photo-snapping, and I just read your post. Very informative, and I thank you for providing this detailed background of this Herc. It is a nice honor to the crew of "Sumit 38."

Great photo! Is this a commercial use for a former A-26/B-26?

Superb shot! Long way from home for this early F28. Tenerife South is a long way from Bogota. The one thing the standard F28(absent the belly tank)did NOT have was long legs...7600Kgs was full capacity.

The only AA 763 still left in service as of July 2017 to never have diverted before.

Nice shot Claudio!

Definitely not a Beechcraft Baron 58. Are you sure you have right registration number tagged for this aircraft? Still it is a good photo.

So if there is one it is a magister. If there are four, does this make it a magistrate? Awesome photo Brian!

Written on 2017-07-27 by Andre Blanchard

This is an amazing shot! You can even see what's inside the engine!

From what location at KSFO are you capturing these images?

Written on 2017-07-27 by Chip Fricke

Because he can. And when everyone keeps bringing it up it emboldens him to do it again and again. Ignore it and it will go away.

Do tell me as to why this photo started with a poor vote and it does not need to be the no lifer that left the poor vote.

A great shot of the Gulfstream cockpit. Sadly, I have not flown the G159. But the cluster of propeller pitch lock advisory lights between the Fire T Handles reminds me of the RR Dart powered Fokker F27. We cruised a little slower at around 240knots TAS but still needed a high pitch blade stop, set to 32degs blade angle (as I recall) which had an associated blue light in the F27. Also, similar fuel trimmer toggles below the power levers in this shot. I recall the PNF set these to 50 per cent on final, in case of a Go Around...

Gary... a very nice photo of a Herky Bird climbing out after takeoff!

Joe Baugher has some information on this particular C-130H as you've captured with your camera...

"93-7312 (MSN 382-5377) named 'Spirit of Sumit 38' with 731st Airlift Squadron, 302nd Airlift Wing in Jul 1996 in memory of C-130E 62-1838 which crashed on May 13, 1995. Recently active with 169th ALS, 182nd ALW of Illinois ANG at Peoria ANG Base, Illinois".*

*I've edited Joe's text to correct one minor "typo" - substituted "," for "<" as trailed "ALS" for reading clarity.

In honor of their ultimate sacrifice and in memory of those brave U.S.A.F. aircrew who flew on the original "Sumit 38" from Peterson AFB, here's Joe's entry on that C-130E Hercules...

"62-1838 (MSN 382-3801, 731th TAS) crashed near Bliss, Idaho May 13, 1995 due to engine fire. All 6 onboard killed."

Hi Alan, the Royal Air Force C-130J's don't have wing tanks ... they don't need them.

A take off from 34R is not an unheard of departure; aircraft leaving RNO take off on both of the 34s frequently. However, 34R is the shorter of the parallels so the vast majority of the time the NevANG and visiting Hercs use 34L when departing to the north, and that is what made this liftoff from 34R a bit of a rarity.

The Canadian Air Force Tac Demo F/A-18A 2017 version looks nice.
Great paint scheme!

Overall, though, the Canadian Forces Hornets are pretty tired and should have been replaced years ago.
The Trudeau government's stop gap measure to purchase a small number of F/A-18'F' Super Hornets while the Federal Government makes a final decision on what fighter will replace the original Hornet, isn't enough.

I believe the single engine F-35 is not what the Canadian Forces needs.

Due to the vast expanse of Canadian territory regularly patrolled by our aircraft, we need a dual engined airframe.

The solution would be to select the F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet as the permanent replacement for the original CF-18s.

Dual engines, proven technology, and a ready parts supply mean the Super Hornet is the logical choice.
