Hercules. Mighty Turboprop Muscle

A4_Sketches_1_8th_size_C130_2015_Oct

The four engine prop plane that could transport men and equipment in the front line on rough landing strips. Through the years the C130 Hercules went to many roles like Humanitarian missions, Electronic Warfare, Black Ops even Gunship role like the AC130 seen in movies like Transformer-1 and Lone Survivor.

I almost ride one during a relief distribution in December 2006 trip back to Manila but all flights were canceled because the one I will have a free ride with have no modern avionics and could be flown only during day light. Safety first.

Without a doubt, the dependable Hercules will still serve many Air Forces in the world for many years to come.
