Pics of the day: The C-130 That Collided With a UAV

According to the tipster who sent these our way, the aircraft lost all fuel out of the left wing — something you’d expect when a giant hole is punched in the wing. This meant that the right wing was full of 15,000-pounds of aviation fuel, a situation that caused the aircraft to tip so far to the right that it was in danger of tipping over and tearing the wings and wing box apart while the plane sat on the ground at a forward operating base. Look at the pic above, notice how the left wing is still pretty high despite being weighed down by a pallet of … heavy stuff … that’s tied to it. Can’t you just imagine one nasty gust of wind tipping the aircraft? Maintenance crews scrambled for three days to level the aircraft and it’s now being fully repaired in Utah.
