USAF AC-130W #88-1303 Stinger II gunship, takes off on the runway at Cannon AFB, for its final flight prior to retirement on October 19, 2020. As a gunship, Tail No. 1303 made its claim to fame by being the first gunship to record a combat kill on Feb. 9, 2011. It then went on to achieve another milestone by having the distinction of being the first 105mm cannon-installed whiskey to confirm a 105mm kill in December of 2016. [USAF photo by SSgt.
