C-130 Escort Mission...

Post by Bear » Wed May 12, 2021 2:03 pm

I just flew the C-130 escort. I've tried it before but failed. This time, I splashed all the bandits and formed on the Herc. The 130 flew past the airport and then started porpoising up and down. This went on for a good 5 minutes, and eventually I called it and turned back to the field. Anyone know why this happened?
I knew that they were hostile, but I couldn't take the chance
So I flipped the switch to outboard and said "Boys, it's time to dance"

And they asked me "Where ya goin'?" as I started to diverge
Said "I've had enough of this shit, man, I'm goin' to the merge"

'Cause BVR is great but now it's time to have some fun
So Darkstar, Judy Judy, I'm goin' in for guns

Ask the C-130 to check their hydraulics. Maybe they pulled a United 232 and went into a phugoid cycle.
