Everyone always talks about the B-52 when it comes to long-serving airplanes. This airplane has been IN CONTINUOUS PRODUCTION since 1954, is currently in use by about 75% of the world's air forces, and, fills about 30 separate roles. From it's original medium transport role, electronic warfare, aerial refueling, intelligence gathering, storm chasing, you name it. It may not be fast, it may not be "sexy", but, it is the BEST aircraft ever designed!

30 years in the AF on heavies as MX - B-52, KC-135, C-141, and C-5's. I never got a good read on the HC or MC 130's. Awesome video...thanks!

All I have to say is WOW. The old girl has come a long way. I retired in 1997 after 26 years as a C-130 instructor loadmaster. I flew E and H models accumulating over 5, 000 hrs. And the VA still says my hearing is okay. It was my honor and privilege to serve. Thank you Erik Johnston for bringing back some fond memories. AND THE ROLLERS TURN OVER? Now that is a feature we wish we had back then.

Outstanding! Super useful footage for Aviators past, present, and future! You are to be highly commended for going the hard yards to produce this legacy!

Amazing! This aircraft and crew really show how dedicated the US is to CSAR. I can't think of anyone else in the world who has such a commitment to seeing their downed aircrew recovered. Just think of the confidence you must have as a pilot knowing that if you are forced to bail out over enemy territory these people will be there to find you and bring you home!

These video's are great! So good to just hear the expert explain things as opposed to (cringy) questions. Very well shot, and edited!

Lavatory on a Hercy-bird: Not as nice as the one at home, still better then digging a hole into the ground while fighting of wolfs with the other hand. XD Anyway, another superb video on a wonderful bird. \m/ rock n roll After our 160´s are going to be retired at the end of this year, the A400 comes more into play and we bought some 130J ´s to supplement the A400 fleet. While the 130 and 160 are cloesly related in mission rating and capabilities it sure is nice to know that we´ll get some of the newly build ones, because those 160´s are just too damn old now.

Love your walk around videos.
Uh, while we're making a wish list of operational aircraft that we'd like to see walk around videos of, can you please add the CH-53 to the list as well?
Edit: can I add the C-17 to that list too, please? XD

If you get many hours on that plane and or other large planes you will likely be able to get a high paying job in civil aviation . Still thanks for your service

Thanks for postinga a cool plane (that not everyone might think of) like the C130. Also a plus for active military planes. Would you do one on the C27J by chance - not too well known but a cool plane. Or a T-6?

this is one of the best (if not, THE best) 'walkaround' video on YT, thanks! This is should be the template for all others to follow.

Can't believe how high tech these things are now. It makes my think once you have a good platform just keep upgrading it rather than reinventing the wheel
