Edinburgh 24 October

Post by Stewart Marshall » Sun Oct 25, 2020 4:47 pm

Two nice visitors to Edinburgh yesterday evening -

USMC KC130T "Yanky 97" Vacating Runway 24 at dusk. Welcome sight seeing one of the vulnerable T models still operating as the KC-130J's come into active service with VMGR-452.

An hour later C-37B "SAM952" Arrived from Andrews AFB - The newest C-37B for the USAF I believe delivered in December.

Cheers,
Stewart

Funnily enough and I don't know why but every time I see a US Marine Corps Hercules at Edinburgh it always reminds me of the good old days at Edinburgh when the Marine Corps Jets iike the Skyhawk, Hornet or Prowler all visited. Those were the days - Fantastic.

Great to see an old KC130T still flying about.
