Its rare to get any sort of military traffic showing over Communist China. Last night a USAF C-130J 08-8604 with the callsign TREK905. The Herc is based out of Ramstein AB, Germany.

While its known that the US and other countries are yanking diplomats ad ex-pats out, its unclear why they would need a C-130 unless they had large equipment that needed moving. Its also odd that the ChiCom government would allow US military aircraft in their airspace

Thoughts?

From the base website, they do missions over China. Transporting leaders and even resupply missions. Not a big deal.

Not with a standard C-130.

doesn't the army have some biological type people in germany, its possible help was offered and accepted as well and while getting some folks out they brought others in to lend a hand.

Though if that is what happened that scares me a lot...

I was thinking CDC and their equipment.

You can offload a bunch of equipment and supplies, and load up passengers all in one quick turn around with a Herk. More difficult to get bulky items in an airliner. You also don't have the same restrictions a commercial carrier might put on flight manifests.

Either way if China accepted our offer of help this time that would be concerning to me considering all the rhetoric lately.

I don't think they're going to have a choice. With the numbers and other information about this bug I think it's just a matter of time before outside agencies are there.

Hopefully they won't bring "samples" back.

We got enough problems without our own idiots accidentally releasing crap from hot labs...

That's what they want us to think

There are only a few C-130s that could do what you suggested. They're all accounted for, and none are currently anywhere near China. None are based outside the US on a permanent basis.

I dont doubt it, but its all hypothesis till they accept help.

Once they do that then the theories start to carry weight and that's a little nerve racking.

One of the people I follow on social media just posted an update that the White House is considering suspending all flights to China.

The C-130 was operating out of Japan. It flew to South Korea and then into China before returning to South Korea.

We had that space shuttle thing in LEO for what, two years. Probably another one up there nobody knows about. C130 can't be ideal for collecting anything. Loud as hell, rough ride, expensive as hell and can't get up that high. I'm gonna say no on this theory. Good for transporting stuff and some civilian politicians along with cargo. They probably inspect it on the ground for good measure.

Apparently it was under consideration, but the decision was made not to. There's currently a Kalitta 747 enroute to Anchorage from Wuhan where it will refuel, then continue to Ontario, CA. It's full of Americans that were in the region being brought home.
