C-130 Mishap Photos

Remaining wreckage shortly after HC-130H #1600 went down on July 30, 1982 and sadly killed two of the crew. The aircraft was from Air Station Kodiak and crashed near Attu, Alaska. This C-130 crew was transporting personnel and cargo to the USCG Loran station on the island of Attu. VFR weather conditions deteriorated, forward visibility was lost, and the aircraft impacted with the terrain. The remainder of the crew were injured but escaped the wreckage and survived. This was the only loss of a USCG Hercules. [US Coast Guard photo]
