The following is a public accumulation of C130 Briefing Guides, Study
Guides, Ops Limits and various errata. ATTENTION: These are Unofficial
documents. None of this information is a substitute for official
publications, regulations or USAF Tech Orders. Feel free to view each file or download them all;
print and use. Many of these documents are solely specific to a
particular C-130 model, e.g. C-130E, H3, etc. If you
have any gouge of your own please email
me and I will add it to the collection. Please submit your names
with your gouge so that all crew dogs know who to thank.
