Translation from local Rio newspaper: "in Rio, in the afternoon, a C-130 Hercules Aircraft from the Brazilian Air Force had a hydraulic problem after takeoff and needed to make an emergency return to Galeao Air Base. According to Infraero, the aircraft was circling overhead the airport for an hour. Emergency equipment arrived from the base but, the aircraft arrived without a problem"
In reality it took over two hours while TFS aircrew worked outside the scope of the Technical Order to get the right main landing gear down and locked before exhausting its fuel load. The aircraft was recovered without incident, thus saving the aircraft from a gear up landing and significant damage.
