KoenL Posted April 25, 2011 Share Posted April 25, 2011 A friend of mine runs a website ( http://dstorm.eu/ ) dedicated to the airwar part of Operation Desert Storm. On his website he tries to get complete lists of every aircraft that has taken part along with images and extra information where possible. While he does have a list of some of the Spectres that took part in the war he's not sure if the list is complete and he's always looking for more info. I will start another seperate topic for the AC-130H in ODS later. Does anyone have any additions/corrections to this AC-130A list? Serialnumber Nose Art Comment 53-3129 The First Lady 54-1623 Ghost Rider 54-1630 Azrael - Angel of Death 6 mission markings (camels) 55-0011 Night Stalker 6 mission markings (5 camels, 1 crab) 55-0014 Jaws of Death 23 mission markings (camels) 55-0046 Proud Warrior 56-0509 Ultimate End 56-0522 C-130A assigned to 711st SOS for high priority cargo and personnel transport Some questions/remarks: 53-3129: Did she fly any combat missions? Did any missionmarkings get applied and do pictures exist? 54-1623: Same question as for the above 55-0011: What does the crab symbol marking stand for? 55-0046: There are pictures of this aircraft with 12 pineapple (?) markings and 1 crab marking. Do these originate from ODS and what do they stand for? 56-0509: There are pictures of this one with 11 pineapple markings, from ODS? 56-0522: Do any pictures of 56-0522's 711th SOS/ODS period exist? Did any further AC-130A's take part? Hope someone can shed some light on some of these questions. Koen Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
