The Monster COD thread (homage to the C-2A Greyhound)

apparently talking to a COD pilot yesterday, that they dont fly super engines, and there isnt really a need to. Ship keeps extras on it, and same situation will happen with the jsf. So I recant my up shit creek statement. Less flying of metal and more cheer leaders, imo.

Hi Guys, my first post here. I am researching the C-2A Greyhound. If there are any aircrew/maintainers here I would appreciate information on its role, handling qualities, virtues and vices and any tales you might have about it now that it is in its 50th year since first flight. I am working on an article to be published in a UK aviation magazine. if anyone has anything they would like to send me please hit me with a PM and I will give you my email address. Thanks.
