Hercules C130K Mk3

Taken 12/9/2013 at RAF Cosford

12th August 2011 saw the museum receive a Hercules a plane that had long been on their wish list.
The XV202 Hercules C130K Mk. 3 was an American aircraft built by Lockheed in Marietta, Georgia
and was used by the United States Air Force.

It was acquired by the RAF in 1966 and used mainly on longer routes and for paratrooping.

The day of my visit saw The Chief of the Air Staff fly in to formally hand XV202 over to the museum.
