The inside of a C-130 is a noisy (note the ear protection) and not particularly warm (note the sweaters) place. It’s not really built for comfort. The small door behind Mike leads to a short stairway, at the top of which is the cockpit. The 3 vertical straps on the wall behind me are just a small example of how items are secured throughout the plane’s interior. The 2 guys on Mike’s right are crewmen; the rest are scientists. Behind the cameraman lies the bulk of the cargo, both scientific and military.
