My experience with the C-130 might be a bit unusual but true none the less. I had never flown in any aircraft, civilian or otherwise before stepping into this workhorse. Additionally, I never had the opportunity to land in this aircraft! The first time I was experiencing flight was overwhelming! Then the command to "Stand Up", "Hook Up", and "Shuffle to the Door" was given over the intercom and a few minutes later I was jumping out the side of the aircraft. My parachute fully deployed as I looked up and saw this great aircraft continue to disperse jumpers. I made a safe landing, several times in fact and still to this day I have yet to land in this beautiful green beast!
