The Mighty Hercules – Warbird Radio LIVE! – Episode 631

WARBIRD RADIO – Colonel Larry Gallogly (RIANG – Retired ) from Lockheed Martin Corporation joins Matt Jolley on this episode of Warbird Radio LIVE!  Before going to work for Lockheed Martin, Colonel Gallogly was the Wing Commander for the 143rd Air Lift Wing in Rhode Island. 

Today, Colonel Gallogly oversees Business Development for Air Mobility Programs for Lockheed Martin and there are few people more up-to-date on the C-130J than Colonel Gallogly.  The Mighty Hercules is the longest continuously produced military aircraft in history (over 60 years) and still serves as the backbone of the United States Air Force’s Air Mobility Command. 

Tonight we’ll learn latest on the C-130J and what’s next for this iconic aircraft.  Matt also welcomes Vincent T.

Top Secret Rescue Plane Revealed

02 - Credible Sport C-130

Warbird Radio goes inside "Credible Sport" - YMC-130.

WARBIRD RADIO  – In 1980, three YMC-130’s were heavily modified as part of a plan to rescue hostages held in Iran.  The idea was simple…land the airplane on a soccer field and then leave with the hostages.  Although Operation Credible Sport was never executed, one of the aircraft was destroyed in testing, the second was demodified and returned to service, and the third was retired in 1987 and is now on display at a museum.  Warbird Radio is currently working on a show that will highlight this amazing program and the masterminds who made it possible.

In the mean time please enjoy the photos of the only surviving aircraft.  Just click on the “Continue Reading” button.
