If it is in tanker configuration, isn't it asking for trouble to carry large amount of explosives as well?
    Apparently there were troops onboard, so likely it wasn't configured for tanker duty.

    Not really. C-130s that do refueling use their own fuel tanks to refuel from.

    What do they use when they refuel jets?
    Propeller aircraft use AVGAS
    Jets use JP-4 or the equivalent

    C-130s use jet fuel since they are turboprops.

    Before I got out we used JP4 primarily and as I recall we were transitioning to JP8.

    Two different debris fields from something that apparently happened in cruise at 20000 feet is not a mechanical issue IMO. At least one eye witness on the ground reported hearing some explosions.
    Thoreau... do you think that mini-nukes might have been planted on board the plane in order to intentionally crash it?

    It does not appear that way to me. Have you any facts or evidence to suggest that is what happened, or are you just pulling my leg?

    Why ask for facts or evidence?

    You have no facts or evidence to support your contention they were used on 9/11 yet you continue claim they were.
