Inside a can of Whoop-Ass


Recommended Posts

I consider the date of 1954 wrong. I was in the 773rd TCS at Ardmore AFB, OK and we got the first C-130 in the Fall of 1956. It must have been on the drawing board in 1954. Before that we had C-119 Flying Boxcars.


According to Lars' book, the YC-130 53-3397 first flew on 8/23/54. The first "real" C-130A, 53-3129 ("The First Lady"), first flew on 4/7/55. A few nits to pick here, but it's still a funny poster -- and true!
