Lockheed Hercules C130K Mk3



The American-built C-130 Hercules transport aircraft was an RAF workhorse well into the 21st Century from its UK debut in late 1966. Rugged, powerful, reliable and well-liked by its crews, this film uses archive footage and first-hand accounts to give some idea of the capabilities of Hercules and the sharp contrast between it and the aircraft that it replaced.
