C-130 Aerial Dispersant On Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill

Posted on May 19, 2010 by bp complaints

airboyd.tv Video by SSgt. Jose Contreras. Courtesy USCG, Deepwater Horizon Response Unit HOUMA, La. — An aircrew releases oil dispersant over an oil discharge from the mobile offshore drilling unit, Deepwater Horizon, off the shore of Louisiana, May 5, 2010. To date, the unified response has dropped 156364 gallons of oil dispersant on the discharge.

The Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations held a hearing entitled “Inquiry into the Deepwater Horizon Gulf Coast Oil Spill” on Wednesday, May 12, 2010. Chairman Stupak explains that the committee investigation found that the blowout preventer had multiple problems—it had an apparent significant leak in a key hydraulic system, was modified in unexpected ways, was not powerful enough to do what it was supposed to do (cut through joints in the drill pipe), and that the “deadman switch” (which is supposed to activate the blowout preventer when all else fails) had a dead battery among other issues.

  10. airboyd says:

    @Flyglobespan93 If you watch my General Spruance video on crash survival, he explains that military pilots should always wear gloves because, in a crash the glove will save their hands from the fire.

  11. skymann says:

    yea, why gloves?
    thanks for the video

  12. AllanVictoriaA says:

    Great video!

  13. BrotherBloat says:

    @Flyglobespan93 possibly because of the fact he’s constantly gripping the controls? kinda like driving gloves, apart form you’re exerting more force on your hands when you fly than when you drive 🙂

    awesome vid, AB!

  14. fuddy12345 says:

  19. AdamEtheredge says:

    Thank you, CG, for doing everything you can to fight this damn spill. Everyone down here is hoping that these dispersants work, and we’re all VERY grateful for CG and USAF help.
    I’ve always thought the 130 was a beautiful plane, but never more so than now.

    Well this is going to give those crazy chemtrail conspirators a hay-day…

    10. If you do come to this country illegally, you will be actively hunted and

    when caught, sent to jail until your deportation can be arranged. All assets

    will be taken from you.

    Too strict ?

    The above laws are current immigration laws of MEXICO!

  23. TruthSeekinOne says:

    8. If foreigners come here and buy land… options will be restricted. Certain

    parcels including waterfront property are reserved for citizens naturally born

    into this country.

    9. Foreigners may have no protests; no demonstrations, no waving of a

    foreign flag, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his

    policies. These will lead to deportation.

  24. TruthSeekinOne says:


    5. Non-citizens will NEVER be able to hold political office

    6 Foreigners will not be a burden to the taxpayers. No welfare, no food

    stamps, no health care, or other government assistance programs. Any

    burden will be deported.

    7. Foreigners can invest in this country, but it must be an amount at least

    equal to 40,000 times the daily minimum wage.


  25. TruthSeekinOne says:

    New Immigration Laws: Read to the bottom or you will miss the message…

    1. There will be no special bilingual programs in the schools.

    2. All ballots will be in this nation’s language..

    3.. All government business will be conducted in our language.

    4. Non-residents will NOT have the right to vote no matter how

    long they are here.


  26. FairlyGushing says:

    BP needs to cut that riser pipe so that there is only one leak, instead of 2. Then, sink an old oil tanker or an FSO over the leak until the relief well can be dug. An electrically-heated riser pipe can convey the oil to a tanker at the surface.

    Since BP’s efforts at resolving this crisis have repeatedly failed, we think the POTUS should consider exercising extraordinary powers to force BP to allow the Army Corp of Engineers and other independent experts to assist them.

    I think Florida needs more dead dolphins washing up on beaches to boost our economy
