Miscellaneous C-130 Photos

SSgts. Nicholas Adams (left) and Steve Pressler release a memorial wreath out the back of a MC-130H Combat Talon II on February 26, 2009 to honor fallen brethren that were lost 28 years ago near Capones Island, Philippines. A 1st Special Operations Squadron MC-130E, call sign Stray 59, crashed during an exercise killing eight crewmembers and 15 passengers and a crew from Kadena AB, flew to reach the exact coordinates of the crash site to release the ceremonial wreath. The memorial flight has been flown every year since the accident in 1981. Sergeants Adams and Pressler are 1st SOS loadmasters. [USAF photo by TSgt. Aaron Cram]
