Bibliophilia: C-130: The Hercules by M. E. Morris

C-130: The Hercules – M. E. Morris

My nephew suggested building a Hercules out of Lego. I was completely on board with that of course. But rather than wasting paper and toner printing out pictures from the internet, I swung by the library and signed this out. At least 25 years old, but a good source of info on this amazing work horse of a plane. Each chapter is devoted to some of the different tasks it has been assigned to, whether maritime patrols by the US Coast Guard, supply runs down to Antarctica, experiments with landing and takeoffs on air craft carriers or conversion to the lethal Spectre gun ship.
