    War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things.
    The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse.

    The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
    - John Stuart Mill

    Aren't the NASA airplanes Frankenherks?

    No, they were mostly EC-130Q's from the Navy and one B that was the only C-130C 58-0712

    Sure. I'll write a check. But that paint scheme has gotta go.

    It just does not look like a Herk with that white paint scheme. It looks kind of ... I dunno... delicate.

    Next time you come in low over the house, make it exciting and do something like a barrel roll.

    Talking paint job...

    I'd be cautious about the white paint job - they may be trying to hide some extensive body work!

    Still a b E A utiful plane none the less.

    I'd take one anyway I could get it. Less the center wing box problems of course.

    I kinda like the paint scheme. Except it'd be a full time job for somebody to keep it clean.

    Reminds me when I was CC on a VC-118A, 53-3229. Except the bottom of the fuselage wasn't painted, the leading edges and cowling weren't either. We had to polish the unpainted areas with Met-all everytime it flew a VIP mission. What a pain. And at Wright-Patt there were a lot of VIP trips in the early 70s. Even keeping it clean after pilot pros and standard pax runs. Finally talked them into painting the lower fuselage the standard light gray. Helped with the polishing but still had to wash it alot and keep it clean.

    Talking White Paint

    Nah, easy to keep clean, just needs an orange and blue racing stripe.

    Wax on/Wax off!
