USAF C-130 Photos

Motley C-130 crewmembers hanging out on tail ramp in between flights. Somewhere in Vietnam – 1972. Captain Ed standing to right with Navigator Major ? and Flight Engineer E.P. sitting next to Ed. Must have had interesting cargo because we had 3 Loadmasters (usually only 1) … with one standing between the other two sitting with good hats. I’m seated far left. Most of us are wearing the olive drab canvas topped jungle boots which were a bit cooler in the heat, although we were fortunate not to depend on other features of the boot that the ground troops needed: quick drying from mud and water, and steel plated soles for protection against booby traps. Most of us also sporting GI issue sunglasses. [photo by Robert D Young]
