Thought these photos were neat. Does anyone know the serial:


Airmen from the 62nd Maintenance Squadron spent more than two months repainting C-130E #62-1789 in the Vietnam-era camouflage scheme. The aircraft was painted for the McChord Air Museum and will be on display in the McChord Air Park in the near future. [Courtesy photo]

The real serial is 62-1789 Lock 3736 but I understand they are going to paint on a false serial number to represent an E model that was actually stationed at McChord.

Thanks Bob, I've gone ahead and updated the captions and added a couple of these pictures to the database. :D According to the McChord museum this 'E' will be re-serialed as #63-7788 from 36 TAS.
