Lockheed C-130
Forty different models have been produced of this legendary aircraft. In 1963, a C-130 Hercules landed on an aircraft carrier without using the arresting gear, thus becoming the heaviest aircraft to have ever accomplished this feat. As a transport airplane, the H model of the C-130 can carry 64 troops, 92 patients, or 45,000 pounds of cargo. (USAF Historical Photo)
