Folks, Please: John flying a C-130 (or any other aircraft) as Loadmaster at this time is enough for me. The fact that he retired from active duty after 20 plus years as loadmaster he is still a LOADMASTER doing loadmaster functions during aerial delivery. The PLA has some civilian LOADMASTERS that only fly on certain flights that require our knowledge and expertise. Trust me John L has them in excess.
There may be guys still out there doing the job (retired from active duty, reserve, guard, Non-Us operators or civilian ). Most loadmasters know when they are performing as a loadmaster. In my humble opinion we all should respect and acknowledge each other’s experiences.
How is anyone flying as a loadmaster with the guard or reserves past the age of 60?
