  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

  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
