1/200 model of Spare 617
Graywolf88 posted a topic in C-130 HistoricalSeveral places are selling a 1/200 scale model of Spare 617 now. They are from "The Airplane Shop. It looks pretty accurate. There is a video on U-Tube showing the model. For any who do not know, Spare 617 was the call sign of the C-130-E that was shot up really bad on a low level airdrop at An Loc, Vietman in April of 1972. It was flown back to Tan Sun Nhut and crash landed on the runway with only one engine still turning. The entire crew, except for the Aircraft Commander was injured from ground fire, and a fire in the cargo compartment. Spare 617 is now in the USAF Museum in Ohio.
