Lockheed C-130 Hercules tells the remarkable story of the world's most successful military heavylift aeroplane. In service since the mid 1950s it looks set to remain an important and integral part of many of the world's airforces well into the next century.
The author describes the development, testing and operational use of the Hercules from its inception at the time of the Korean war through its many labours in the face of adversity in S E Asia, the Gulf war and a myriad other operations.
