Lockheed C-130 Hercules. These
pictures were taken back in the 1980s while I was in the Air Force.
Flown by over 60 different countries for almost 50 years, the C-130 is
a legend in the cargo world.
This is the oldest C-130
in US service. It is a C-130A built in 1956! It is assigned to the US
Navy VX-30 "Bloodhounds" Test and Evaluation Squadron at NAS Point Mugu.
Thes 2 pictures were shot
from quite a distance away. I was on the ramp at KCMA when I spotted a
few C-130s cruising by to the east. I beleive that these are part of
the Air National Guard based at Channel Islands.
