I haven’t been to an air show in almost 20 years. While watching the History Channel’s Modern Marvels episode on the subject, I was fascinated to see the Navy’s Blue Angels team has incorporated their “Fat Albert” C-130 Hercules transport into the show. Great for them. The Herk is an amazing plane. I used to marvel at the reservists practice their “hot zone” landings at Keesler – basically dropping the planes onto to runway from several thousand feet.
