Bring The Rain!
Just a badass piece of hardware.
pretty sure #24 is the Airbus A400M…
Looks like a c-130 to me. It says it on the yokes.
Its an older model too.
The C-130 on the yoke should be a give-away.
The Herc has been my office since 2001, trust me
Puff the Magic Dragon……
#58 Death from above…
"It'll only take a minute". Pilot to John Wayne, The Green Berets.
"You can run, but you'll die tired"
H models, U boats, some with the new 30mm, some slicks and some HCs/MCs.. Nice
Gorgeous damn planes, loved hearing them takeoff over Bagram when I was there in 2008. They don't sound like a normal Herky either. That 105 would hand it to 'em.
#48 is an example of a badass as well, MC-130E Combat Talon I
Awesome pics. However, most of these are not Spookys (AC-130U) Many, including #10 #21 #28 #30 and #33 are all Spectres (AC-130H). Again, awesome pics, but might have named it better.
my bad, looking again, #30 is in fact a Spooky…
#49 #51 #60 #61
Those are also AC-130H's. I also work on these planes
#62 Tail #1054… Flew this one before it was a Gunship….was the fastest one we had…
Not all of these are even gunships, some are just regular slicks. #47 is one of my birds here at cannon afb. mc-130j, we share the flightline with spectres here
There is a C-130 based out of Dyess that has the tail number 1666. She was nicknamed Damion for years, or the flaming tomato based on the nose art she had on her. They would take her to Georgia to train Airborne troops, and no one wanted to fly on it because of the 666 tail number. It was a huge pain in the ass on station, but off station was the best flying aircraft in the fleet!
I have great memories working on these planes, they are truly the workhorse of the air force fleet.
triple 6 is gone bro, fucking gay models took that place over. and yes, damian was a beast down range!
I do accept as true with all the concepts you have introduced for your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too quick for newbies. May you please extend them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
I'm pretty sure I was flying #47 at the time….
I thought it is going to be some boring old post, but it really compensate for ours time. I will posted a link to the article on our blog.
Awesome album, even better since a lot of these are spectres, not the spooky. Still, make it better by getting rid of that awful "J" model.
#25 The Arbitrator (53-3129) was not only the first C-130 Hercules off the assembly line in 1955, but it was also the first AC-130 back in 1968, so aka The First Lady. She's in retirement now at Eglin Armament Museum outside Eglin AFB. I don't know the story of the #4 The First Lady, but she's defintely not the original "First Lady" gunship… maybe the first AC-130U model named in honor of 53-3129? … http://www.spectre-association.org/First_Lady_129…
first AC-130J is going to start modding this month. Should be nice having 25% more power and range.
but it really compensate for ours time. I will posted a link to the article on our blog.
#18 #22 #47 and #54 are all C-130J's (Super Hercs)
#9 – USMC KC-130's. Semper Fi.
