I was a Loadmaster at Ardmore AFB, OK. I was the Loadmaster on the crew that went to Marietta and took 55-0023 back to Ardmore. Still have the orders to pick it up from the factory.

Great I think that completes the 64th TAS/AS. Here are the H's that I knew about:

87-9281
87-9282
87-9283
87-9284
87-9285
87-9286
87-9287
87-9288

Correction to above A models, think means 57-0520 (note 56-0520) and 56-0537 (not 56-0577) as the c/n's confirm this.

Any one know when converted to the C-130H? Was it in 1989?

Aircraft 87-9284 is no-more.

It is the one that the Philippine AirForce crashed this year on July 4th taking 50 souls with her. 104 people were aboard at the time of time.
