As a C-130 pilot, I can tell you
that 98% of the time it's just us messing with the Pax... for that
last 2%, well, we only carry four parachutes. Those parachutes are
in the cargo compartment and you
guys are the ones with the guns

    • Why not carry more you ask? Loadmaster here, just to give you a warm and fuzzy, if we are ever in a situation we need to jump out, the chance that you will have enough time and the aircraft remains stable enough to put on a parachute, open up the door and jump out is pretty much absolutely zero👍

    • This one time over Afghanistan in C17 a engine caught on fire. They just kept going like nevermind the fire in the engine, it's not like there's a fuel line or anything. Then we landed in Bagram and the base was taking mortor fire. Day 1 of my first deployment.

    • When I was little, I rode in a C-130 to Guam, from Okinawa. Halfway there, it turns out the door couldn't close, so we rode the rest of the way to Guam with a guy just holding it shut.

    • Only 4 parachutes? Didn't they learn ANYTHING from Titanic about the ratio of lifeboats (parachutes) to the amount of passengers? That ratio should ALWAYS be at least 1:1

    • So my experience in Afghanistan with a C-130: Took off from BAF. Going to the north. High speed shit. We land. ‘Quick flight boys.’ Ramp drops. Looking at BAF again. ‘The fuck?’ Crew chief says’ #1 and 4 engines died. Had to turn around.

    • As a c130 mechanic, the pilots note makes it even funnier. We often remark that if a 130 is going down, it flies so low to the ground they have no damn chance of getting to a chute, putting it on, and jumping before they flatten into a pancake.
