In several movies I have watched recently, the temporary bench style seats of tactical transport aircraft such as the C-130 do not show seat-belts. I would not be surprised that some instances of seat belts would be ignored during times of war but let's limit this question to standard operations.

So, is it standard practice for transport aircraft such as the C-130 or Chinook helicopter during large personnel missions to provide all occupants with seat belts?


Every one I've been on has had them going back to the 70's. Here's a picture that clearly shows them:
