Sam's C-130 Page



In the history of aviation there have been a handful of airplanes that have achieved true super-star status. Most have been bombers or fighters while some, such as the Douglas DC-3, became famous because of both their familiarity and their capabilities. Others, such as the Boeing B-17, became famous because they came from the factory with their own press-agent packed in the box who passed out news release after news release. But there is one airplane that is a super-star because of what it can do, what is has done and what it will do in the future. That airplane is Lockheed's Model 182-282-382, but which is known the world over as the Hercules.
