  Lockheed C-130 - Wikipedia
Die Lockheed C-130 Hercules der Lockheed Corporation ist eines der vielseitigsten militärischen Transportflugzeuge.
Auch eine zivile Frachtversion wurde von der Hercules hergestellt, die L-100.
Obwohl die Erprobung auf der Forrestal erfolgreich verlief, entschied sich die Navy später, ein kleineres Transportflugzeug für den Trägereinsatz in Auftrag zu geben (die spätere C-2 Greyhound), da man die Operationen mit der C-130 schließlich doch als zu risikoreich ansah.

 C-130 Hercules biography .ms   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The Lockheed C-130 Hercules, a four-engine turboprop aircraft, is the main tactical air transport aircraft of the United States military forces.
The C-130H-30 is a stretched version of the original Hercules, achieved by inserting a 2.54 m plug aft of the cockpit and a 2.03 m plug at the rear of the fuselage.
While externally virtually undistinguishable from the classic Hercules the J model is a radically different aircraft "under the skin." These differences include new Rolls-Royce Allison AE2100 turobprops with composite propellers, digital avionics, reduced manpower requirements, increased reliability and up to 27% lower operating costs.
