    I used to know some C-130 guys who'd load a van in the back from their home base so that when they flew out somewhere they'd have ground transportation.

    I really hope they don't get in trouble for that. This is awesome!

    Bingo.
    Now THAT would solve the perennial problem with North 40 camping at OSH. Not to mention eliminate the drowned tent syndrome that seems to strike every few years.

    Are C-130s on the list of 10 not to own? :rolleyes:

    Nothing wrong with the using the aircraft to go pick up a cell phone. We used to do a multiship XC to Pensacola to hit Mcguires Pub. It's still training and if it falls within the allotted flying hour program, they're good to go.

    What's questionable is the choice of landing site. Don't know Marine regs but Army, landing in a private or a public non airport/helipad must be approved by local authorities. Biggest thing is, it needs to be secured also. An unescorted civilian approaching a running aircraft probably won't be looked upon favorably by the CoC either. :(

    When I was stationed at Norfolk my son's helo squadron was training at Ft Picket near Petersburg VA. I rented a plane from Langley AFB flying club and took a cake out to his squadron on the Marine Corps Birthday. They hadn't planned anything but were very happy to get the cake.
