The Lockheed C-130 Hercules in Detail
Part 3 - Engines
Our tour around Hercules 848 continues with the engines and a few overall views.
A detailed view of one of the large propellers. Note the amount of stenciling and logos.
A close-up of the peculiarly shaped cuffs at the blade roots.
Detail of some of the inlets and outlets of the nacelle. The red square marks a spring loaded hatch used to access the nacelles in case of fire.
The jet exhaust and the area behind it.
An overall view showing the contrast between a rather clean front end and a remarkably dirty rear!
A final reminder not to forget to add nose weight! 843 was found in this condition one morning after a heavy snowfall!
