Hello,

I'm calling to all you C-130 fans and experts. I'm composing a history of aircraft 63-7872, a C-130E. Can anyone direct me or send me through here, a good listing of the history of aircraft 63-7872, a C-130E? I have some information, but would love to have more including any photos or patches.

Thanks much!!

Dale

What do you want to know about that aircraft?? I did crew that c-130 while it was deployed to the desert on 2003. It had been at the 182nd airlift wing in Peoria IL ANG from 1995 until around 2004 or so when they upgraded to h3s.

We have it listed as leaving Peoria in February 2006. Do you have an early more exact date? What month did the aircraft arrive in 2004.

Here is the history we have on this web site:
