118th AES Retired Posted November 22, 2009 Share Posted November 22, 2009 Still working on my "history project" Boy, I'm really having a hard time finding any information on this one. Here's what I have so far: Not much information is available on 56-0512 and not many photos were found of this aircraft. The aircraft was assigned to the 118th and was listed as a â€œformerâ€ aircraft of the 118th in the 1986 publication From Blackwood Field to Berry Field 1921-1986. This aircraft arrived at AMARC on 20 May 1976, and was assigned the AMARC control # CF007. The AMARC database shows that this aircraft had previously been assigned to the 166th Tactical Airlift Group in Greater Wilmington. J. Baugherâ€™s account of this aircraft is as follows: 512 (c/n 182-3120) to MASDC as CF0007 May 20, 1976. Converted to ground trainer as GC-130. Seen at Paul Garber facility of NASM. It is possible that 56-0512 may have been involved as a part of the â€œBlind Batâ€ program as I did find one post listing this tail number as one having been involved in the program. If anyone can provide any info on 56-0512 along with the others I've posted as needing informaiton on, I certainly would appreciate it! Thanks to all who have helped and who have contributed information! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
