• Hercules 250 Feet Low Level Time On Target.

    The Hercules C130J Low Level Operation

     

    The crew plan a low level mission, with simulated avoid area’s and simulated anti-aircraft gun locations. The Mission is flown, at 250 feet with the intention time on target, a pre briefed drop zone, to drop men and machines.

    I get a text with the Ordinance Survey (OS) Lat and Long, I head to the OS location and set up a simulated drop zone, with communication.

    The crews aim, to hit the drop zone at a predetermined time and as accurately as possible, to drop the troops on the drop zone.

    Happy Days.
