    it's hard to tell from the picture if it was the prop flange adapter or the prop that failed.

    So far looks like the flange on the PGB

    On Condition not life limited for overhaul

    OK that is odd to me on the C-130 they are life limited

    C-130 engines produce more than twice the shp.

    I think a million years ago there was scheduled interval maintenance and overhaul. But so few have been problematic it became on condition. Every prop change the flange is checked. That's why this is a mind blower.

    Normally an event like this has to happen twice before an emergency AD is issued. Better I spection methods will probably be required going foreword.

    That's probably because the T56 has been throwing props since the 50s.

    Depending on where the crack started, it may not be visible without disassembly. Not a lot of room behind the flange.

    Man I hope its not a draconian measure.
