The Little Rock Air Force Base is the primary home of the C-130 Hercules training base for the Department of Defense. This air base contains the largest C-130 Herules transport fleet in the world. They train pilots, navigators, flight engineers, and loadmasters from all branches of the U.S. military airlift and aerial delivery. These planes clock 15,600 yearly hours of flight time to train the personnel who fly and mange these C-103E, C-103H, and C-130J aircraft. Little Rock Air For Base is home to the 19th Airlift Wing.
You can hear and feel the Air Force C-130s in Arkansas long before you see them appear in the sky overhead. On their return run toward the air base after practice drops of supplies and materials, they pass right over our house or very near. I have often photographed these huge aircraft. Here are some of the pictures I have captured in my camera lens.
This is a picture of the main gate going into Little Rock Air Force Base. You can see the cars and trucks lined up behind this C-130 as they drive through the gate.
