The C-130 Hercules was a military transport aircraft that carried the supplies and material necessary to keep the Blue Angles flying. It was the heaviest aircraft to successfully land and takeoff from a carrier. Outfitted with a versatile airframe, this aircraft was sometimes employed for other missions such as search and rescue, aerial refueling, and aerial firefighting. More notably, it has been used as a gunship during war operations. Aside from its military roles, this aircraft was also known for its role as the support aircraft for the Blue Angels squadron.
