Video at link.

C-130 64-0539 was called 'Frankenherc' because the nose section was off of 68-10946 from the 1984 Giebelstadt, Germany crash (hard landing) which was used to repair 64-0539 after it crashed at Lajes Field in the Azores in 1984.

The C-130 is a truly great aircraft.

Must have been one tired airframe. Still...could have been a display. Maybe at my place.

It was at a museum.
No one wanted it.

It was not flyable.
Do you know how much it costs to dismantle a C-130 and ship it to a museum?

A lot less than it costs to fly jug-ears anywhere.

I watched you guys go by twice. We were on the beach at Gearhart then we drove up to the jetty at the mouth of the Columbia.

Nothing beats standing on the flight line as a c130 taxis right towards you and then pivots right parking with the end of the wingtip right over your head.
