description

Summary

An aircrew with the Illinois Air National Guard’s 182nd Airlift Wing at Peoria operates a C-130 Hercules over the installation Dec. 1, 2017, near South Post as part of training at Fort McCoy, Wis. The C-130 and crew were practicing landing and taking off from Young Air Assault Strip on South Post. Capable of using unprepared runways for takeoffs and landings, the C-130 was originally designed as a troop, medevac, and cargo transport aircraft. The versatile airframe has found uses in a variety of other roles, including as a gunship, for airborne assault, search and rescue, scientific research support, weather reconnaissance, aerial refueling, maritime patrol, and aerial firefighting.
