C-130 Hercules (Fat Albert)
Entering service in the 1950s, Lockheed's C-130 Hercules has proven a dependable, versatile aircraft for over 50 years. C-130s have flown in countless operations since their introduction, and have the longest continuous production run of any military aircraft. One of two versions of the C-130 displayed at the Museum is a TC-130G that served with the Blue Angels as the demonstration squadron's "Fat Albert" logistics aircraft. It flew in this role from 1991 until its retirement in 2002.
