The aircrew of a C-130H transport carrying 34 passengers was able to land the aircraft safely at Joint Base Balad, Iraq, on June 9, 2010, after experiencing a severe hydraulic leak in flight that left some critical aircraft systems inoperable, announced Balad officials, June 15, 2010. Aircrew members were able to manually lower the aircraft's landing gear and flaps, and the pilots were able to land with only partial power to the flight controls and no anti-skid braking available. Here, another C-130 taxies down Balad's runway.
