Wild Ride with Fat Albert, the Blue Angel's Herky bird

Most of you by now have figured out that I’m a fan of the C-130 Hercules. This remarkable transport is operated by all the services except the Army, and I bet they wish they had a few.

The Blue Angels have long used a C-130, affectionately nicknamed Fat Albert, to support their show by flying the maintenance crews to the airshow sites. And lately, they’ve incorporated a short demonstration of the remarkable aircraft’s capability into some shows.

The clip shows not just a bit of the flying of the C-130, but a slice of life for the crew of this big bird.
