Blue Angels Legacy Hornet and Hercules Scrapbook
The U.S. Navy and Marine Corps’ Blue Angels have retired all of their Legacy aircraft during the 2020 calendar year. Gone is the Marines KC-130T “Fat Albert Airlines” transport, as well as the F/A-18A/B/C/D Hornets.
New aircraft in the form of F/A-18E/F Super Hornets and a KC-130J (formerly an RAF Hercules C.5 transport) will begin their campaign with the start of the 2021 air show season.
Here’s a look back of all of the airframe types being retired by some of the Photorecon.net photographer team. Enjoy!
