C 130 For Sale !

Recommended Posts

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.
