There was ex-USAF #56-0511 in the movie The Dark Knight Rises.

That Herc is operated by 'International Air Response' from Arizona, USA.

Finally found the photo of 'Heavy Metal' #69-6573 "Decepticon" kill marking


USAF AC-130H #69-6573 from 16 SOS "Heavy Metal", proudly displays its "Decepticon" kill marking under the pilots window April 8, 2015 at Cannon AFB. Heavy Metal was the gunship featured in the first Transformers film as it was called in to "bring the rain" in order to protect special forces operators from a giant robot scorpion.
