Not stop loss again !!
May 9, 2002
Any info on who owned the C-130 that had the dual wing off light awhile ago? Is it Hawkins and Powers out of Grey Bull? I was thinking about sending a resume but not so sure now! Heard that maybe they had a trouble with a PBY also. Wondering what the deal is with maintenance program that owns these birds!?

It was them--they owned both the C-130A that went in and the PB4Y that crashed last weekend. Hope they find out what caused both, as they sound to me like some kind of fatigue problem, not perhaps shoddy maintenance. Anyway the fleets of both a/c have been grounded until they determin what happened.
