Re(7): Spinning a C130

My understanding is that the aircraft did six spins.

The aircraft flew 20 knots slower and whilst no damage was found the aircraft flew was suspect of having a bent tailplane.

The old girl flew for many years after that with no problems.

Bruce used to hold the stall until one could not read the instruement from vibrations.

How young and trusting we were in those days were we not One of the two USAF aircraft that went in from a stall/spin situation was captained by a RAAF exchange pilot.

TIS a tribute to out maintainers that we have close to 900,000 hours of accident free flying, not just the pilots.
