C-130E HERCULES

Adopted by Macomb County Young Marines

This Lockheed-built transport, Aircraft #62-1848, 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. The C-130E was flown by the Airlift Element of the 127th Wing in worldwide missions from 1994 to 2007 when the unit converted to the KC-135 in the air refueling mission. This aircraft has been repainted to represent a C-130E flown by the 171st Airlift Squadron of the Michigan ANG.
