A turboprop transport plane first flown in 1954, the C-130 Hercules is one of the most versatile aircraft in U.S. history — used for everything from medevac and rescue missions to gunship and airborne assault duties. More than 2,500 have been produced and, more than half a century after its introduction, it remains in active service throughout the world (more than forty variants have been designed).
