C-130A HERCULES

Adopted by USNSCC Anchor Division

This Lockheed-built transport was originally developed as an assault transport capable of operating from short unpaved runways. It has since been adapted for many uses by military and commercial organizations worldwide. Our C-130A was originally built as an RC-130A and was flown by the 127th Tactical Fighter Wing as a support aircraft from 1986 to 1989 when it was replaced by a C-130B. The C-130A is generally open for tours on most weekends during our open season, April through October.
