  • Hercules anyone?

    Norway is selling 5 Hercules for about 10 Million Dollars a pop. They even have quite a few flight hours left around 14,000.

    If that airframe life is correct then that sounds like a good deal. However they would need a trip to Marshalls(the Herc experts) for a cockpit upgrade to reduce the flight deck crew from three to two. The Austrians did that a few years ago.

      Only a fool would pass up that deal. Even with a 3 man cockpit.


      Catch-22 says they have a right to do anything we can't stop them from doing.

          I'll check them out when they arrive in Tucson so and get back to you.

            I remember a short time ago a very handsome, eurdite, well educated and modest poster

            recomended that the Govt buy second hand gick- including helis

            I am soooooooooooooo glad that

            people have caught up (at last) with his progressive thinking
            Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
            Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
            The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
            The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
            The best lack all conviction, while the worst
            Are full of passionate intensity.

                Sorry Hedgie but erudite, meaning "learned, scholarly, with emphasis on knowledge gained from books" is spelt erudite, not eurdite...

                    Hedgehog is an educated Viking. He reads the comic books to the other vikings.
