USAF C-130 Photos

2011 Spotlight C130 Flightline 001 1267828237 3350
A lineup of USAF C-130As sits on the Lockheed-Georgia Company production flight line in Marietta, Georgia, in 1957 prior to delivery. One of the first Hercules built, complete with the original Roman nose, sits at the far left. The Hercules in the middle (#55-0005) would eventually be left behind at Tan Son Nhut AB, South Vietnam, as that country fell to Communist forces in 1975. The aircraft to its left (#55-0007) was transferred to the Bolivian Air Force in 1988. The C-130A in the foreground (#55-0009) was destroyed in a rocket attack at Da Nang AB, South Vietnam, in 1967.
