I wasn't in MAC, so I didn't know the LAPSE acronym.
And yep. Just watching that will leave me puckered for the evening.
Didn't they ball up a C-130 doing one of those?
At least one, I am sure.
Actually, I spelled it wrong - LAPES
I cannot imagine the COG shift, when twenty-some TONS pops off the extreme rear or the ramp - but I bet the pilot pees himself.
C130 LAPES bad day.
Prayers for all involved.
