There is some wackiness going on about a number of C-130's being moved from Texas to Montana. There is quite a buzz about the plan. If it's such a bad decision to move the planes, which are used to provide personnel and supplies during disasters, then why are they doing it? Is something really going down soon in Montana that they would need eight C-130's in the near future?

Perry: Feds Erring Over Plan to Move Fort Worth's C-130s

Gov. Rick Perry says a proposal to shift eight Air Force planes used for disaster relief from Texas to Montana ranks as "one of the worst decisions" the federal government has made.

The cargo planes provide personnel and supplies during disasters.

"Texas has been hit with more major disasters over the last 60 years than any other state, and the C-130 aircraft has been an instrumental part of our emergency response, airlifting evacuees from coastal hospitals and bringing supplies and life-saving equipment to the Gulf Coast," said Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst. "I believe keeping these eight C-130s in Texas is a cost-effective way for the U.S. Air Force to maintain mission readiness, and their failure to justify the transfer of these critically important aircraft is unacceptable."

The Air Force wants to move the planes to Montana as part of proposed budget cuts.

At the planning level, you don't want to have assets in a disaster zone prior to a disaster. You want them staged in "safe zones" so they won't be affected by the disaster when it hits. Gov Perry even says that they have a lot of disasters down in TX, so I'm guessing that's why they are being moved.

It doesn't take long to fly a C-130 from Montana to Texas so they can pick up supplies and personnel before leaving. Good plan on the Fed's part!
