March 2, 2014 (by Jon Sommerville) - A training airframe C-130 is moved through the streets of San Antonio from Kelly Field to Camp Bullis, Texas. Aircraft was C-130E #64-0510 (c/n 3994), a former Air National Guard Hercules that last served with the 198th Airlift Squadron based out of Puerto Rico.
Stripped of its tail, all four engines and its wings beyond its inner engines, it travelled highways past many curious onlookers.
This retired C-130 will be used for training military medics how to load injuried patients for air transfers. Movement was made by contractor World Wide Aircraft Recovery and many local volunteers on March 2, 2014 from Joint Base San Antonio, also known as Kelly Field or Lackland AFB, Texas. It was a one day trip to nearby Medical Readiness Training Center for the 937th Training Group at Camp Bullis, Texas.
Trip time took four hours with the 502nd Trainer Development Squadron from Joint Base San Antonio being responsible for the transfer.
