First time flying a C-130!

Setup a little flight today on my lunch break at work, decided to fly the C-130J for the first time!
This thing was totally different from the usual 777, 737, A320’s I have been practicing. It literally feels like a floating boat to me, lol! Definitely going to need some more behind-the-yoke time to learn how to land these beasts.

KSFO - KNZY (Expert)
C130J (Coastguard livery - Callsign Coastguard 619 [local zipcode!])
Flight time: 1:48
custom Flight plan

Pictures below!

Summary


1 - Departing KSFO

2 - Costal banking

3 - Turning to final KNZY

4 - Cockpit view of short final KNZY

5 - Taxied to parking, cargo unloaded

6 - Cargo view

This was my first time using in-game screenshots, which is your favorite???

It is definitely an interesting plane to fly - given its a propellor-powered plane but a big one. It has unique behaviour compared to every other aircraft in the IF fleet.

Yeah!! Almost everything I’ve been taught was thrown out the window immediately. Lol, this was a rude awakening in my IF career so far… but it was fun none the less! I definitely practiced some final approaches in solo mode after this flight… xD
