C-130 Cargo Rail Systems

$3,000,000

Posted on April 9, 2010

Funding would be used to install cargo rail systems on C-130 aircraft operated by the 118th Airlift Wing of the Tennessee National Guard. The 118th Airlift Wing currently operates 6 WC-130H aircraft without cargo rails that cannot be used for C-130 training.  The 118th Airlift Wing is a training unit that trains pilots on the full operation of C-130 aircraft and this new rail system will allow the 118th to fully use all its aircraft for training.  This project is recommended by the Adjutant General of the State of Tennessee.
