Thread: C130 - Angel (Photos)

  1. Default C130 - Angel (Photos)

    The C-130 Angel System. These are photos of an Air Force C-130 releasing flares to repel heat seeking missiles (testing). The pattern formed by these "decoys" is how the system got the name.

    Say goodbye to your night vision.

    Yeah, that is neat! I wish I knew who I could give the credit to for that, but, alas I don't! I received it via e-mail, and thought it deserved to be made available for others.

    Only had to use the "firework display" once for real. Went very quiet on the crew intercom. Sphincter muscles were exercised for real too. As for night vision, the flare pattern falls behind and down from the aircraft, the airframe drivers look ahead not behind.
