  1. Does anyone know of any humanitarian efforts this C-130E 63-7872 helped in? I'm putting together a historical info on this particular bird. Thanks!!
  2. Here's the University of Dayton's article about what 63-7872 is doing - it's being used to help the USAF keep these old planes such as the C-130, KC-135, B-52, C-5, etc... keep on going, keep on flying - https://udayton.edu/blogs/udri/19-05-15-c-130.php?fbclid=IwAR2Tct-lxjH2IWCXLTHuA0Hce8GTf9hFdgKHs9PXuat3rxSCllhwMIcQwTU#.XNwVlM4SDmg.twitter
  3. Wow great!! I'm collecting the history of this aircraft, if you have any info on it, I'd love to see it!
  4. Hello, I'm calling to all you C-130 fans and experts. I'm composing a history of aircraft 63-7872, a C-130E. Can anyone direct me or send me through here, a good listing of the history of aircraft 63-7872, a C-130E? I have some information, but would love to have more including any photos or patches. Thanks much!! Dale

  6. Yes, I can confirm 7872 is at UDRI now. It is being reassembled and will serve as a research test bed. See: https://www.daytondailynews.com/business/update-giant-130-cargo-plane-delivered-today/HP5m3li2COLsVkS0BPTDwK/
  7. C-130E 63-7872 is now at the University of Dayton Research Institute (parking lot) - is being used by AFLCMC and UDRI as a research aircraft. It was dismantled at Eglin AFB and trucked onto four trucks to Dayton, OH.
