First C-130E
USAF #61-358
First C-130E built. Also has been stated as the last C130E to be retired by the USAF and landed at Edwards AFB, California on May 2, 2012. The retirement of the last C-130E is not complety true since the USAF is still flying some, but it was the last for the AMC. The aircraft was eventually put on display at the AFFTC museum.
