  1. Nice pics HeHe but the listings you show as Dobbins Air Guard are incorrect. The Dobbins C-130's are H3's. We had 81 and 84 models before they were swapped out for 90's+, H3's a year or two ago. Also Dobbins is a AF Reserve base. Are those tail numbers possibly Savannah Air Guard birds? Bill

  2. From the FE seat on our C-130 in the museum.

    Belt,Acft. Safety Lap Type MD-2. PN 54H19651-30   NSN 1680-01-225-7452

    Harness.Acft. Safety Shoulder Adjustable Type M82A Mil Spec. Mil-H-53640   NSN 1680-00-555-2938

    Hope this helps. Bill

  3. This may help a little SteveV22FE. We received Ghost Rider at Dobbins ARB,Ga. on 28 Sep 1995. It was a 2 tone gray with 4 blade props which replaced the 3 blade props in about 1977- 1980. There are 2 pics on this site in the Gallery photos. They are listed as 3010B and C. These are pics on the Dobbins flight line. Pic 3010jpeg shows it at Duke field,Fl with a solid dark gunship gray paint with 4 blade props. Duke Field Fl, 919 SOW, 711 SOS, received Ghost Rider after Vietnam on November 4,1975. So, Duke field had Ghost Rider from 1975 till 1995. They are the only people who could tell you what color it was on the date you worked on it. 3010 is the Lockheed sn. and 54-1623 is the AF tail number. We put the 3 blade props on after it arrived at Dobbins. I will post them for you. The paint was not very new when the plane arrived at Dobbins in 1995 so my guess is it would have been the 2 tone gray when you worked on it in 1993. Hope this helps. Bill

  4. Thanks JC2. We all at the museum are having a great time with the old Herk. Pretty special that we have the name sake of the next 37 AC-130 gun ships i.e., Ghost Rider series, setting 1/2 mile from the Herk factory where they will be built. Bet their theme song will be "Ghost Riders in the sky" by Jonny Cash when they gettem, ha ha. It was in Nam!!! Bill:lol:
