Very nice photo. Used to live in Jax FL and went to the air show every year!! Have seen Fat Albert a few times!

CIRCA 2008, "Fat Albert" would practice current and considered airshow maneuvers at the Tonopah, NV. Test Site airbase (KTNX); exciting to enjoy and marvel at the airmanship displayed by the crew of a large transport aircraft.

Former loadmaster here... there's nothing "E' about Fat Albert, it's a "slick" as far as I know, I could be wrong. But love me some Herkey Birds!!! Hoorah!!

Keith, I'm a former C-130 Loadmaster as well (77-81). Not sure what your reference to this being an "E" model? It's not, it's a J.
