That's all I can say. I've been very, very fortunate. I've been very blessed,” said Jim Warner, a 20-year veteran of the Air Force who earned the military’s highest award for heroics in the sk

The C-130A first flew its first mission for the 133rd Airlift Wing on Feb. 21, 1971. A half-century later, the cargo plane is still known for its ability to take off and land just about anywhere. "We go in and out of the small strips and on top of mountains, down deep in the valleys to much more austere locations than the larger jets," Col. Jamie Lindman, vice
