60th anniversary of the first flight of the C-130

On April 7, 1955, the Lockheed YC-130A Hercules conducted its first flight. Four great US Air Force aircraft from the 1950s remain in operation: B-52, C-130, KC-135 and U-2. The C-130 is unique in that it not only remains in service, but in production.
