Nice shot
Ken Hardy
Its a C-130J model, and has now replaced the older H models
jmonroe
Does the gear retract a little or just stay down?
Paul Fobare
Ken, That is not a "J" model. Count those blades. The J models have 6 blades. It's an H2 with upgraded props. I got more than a few hundred hours in the center seat of that specific aircraft.
And the wheels do retract while the skiis come up flush with the fairing on the fuselage.
Barry Witte
@jmonroe Yes, the skis do retract. Somewhat. They are affixed to the landing gear so that when the pilot selects "gear up" the wheels and the skis move up. The skis move up flush to aerodynamic fairings (you can see these in the photo - especially the nose gear) The skis can move independently, so the wheels can remain up when landing on the skis on snow. To land on pavement, the wheels extend a bit below the skis - again visible in this photo. These are based out of KSCH, Schenectady New York, the 109th NYANG squadron.

This particular aircraft and stablemates are actually even older (technically). They were built as Navy LC-130Rs in two lots, delivered either 1974 or '76 for the Navy Sqdn VXE-6. A Lockheed Georga contract completed a major rebuild in 1983 that converted their designation to LC-130H and reset their USAF registration to 83-. All in all, I would guess these are both some of the oldest 130s flying and some of the best maintained. I'd love to hear the story about those props...

Nice to see a pic from my former unit! Was a Squadron & Group Commander and instrumental in bringing the Antarctic mission to the 109th.
