The Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules: A Complete History (Consign)
You're not likely to find a more thorough history of the ubiquitous and classic tactical transport than this one. Originally published in 2001, the book has been updated to the present, and well it should be, since the Hercules is now pushing sixty years of age. It is operated by countries throughout the world, generally used for the mundane transport 01 'beans and bullets,' but it has, on the other hand, been involved with 'black ops', the details of which will be years coming out, though much can be found in this fine volume. The Here is also famously the first on the scene when natural disasters hit anywhere in the world, and it routinely lands on the ice, the only lifeline to remote Antarctic research bases. All the preceding facts are well known, of course, but Smith has done an astonishing amount of research to put real, human, information behind the statistics, though he supplies the latter in spades. We consider this to be just what the and it belongs in any basic aviation library.Finally, as a footnote to modellers, there is a fine series of colour profiles representing the C-130 in a wide array of roles. --SAM PublicationsI would like to thank Specialty Press for submitting this book for review and thank IPMS/USA for allowing me to do the review.In the 1950s and 1960s I grew up less than a mile from the end of Dobbin Air Reserve Base runway 11. Dobbins has always shared its runway, control tower, weather and rescue services with Lockheed, now Lockheed Martin Aeronautical Systems Company. My younger days were filled with watching planes come and go. I was there in a manner of speaking when the C-130 first came to life. Years later I was employed by Lockheed and worked in the engineering department of several aircraft including the C-130. I was very pleased to receive this book for review. The first C-130A entered service in December 1957. It is still in use and still in production as the C-130J. Approximately 72 countries and numerous civilian organizations use or have used the C-130. During the past 53+ years 27 significant variants have been built. There has probably not been a more versatile airframe designed and built than this one. It has the distinction of being the largest and heaviest aircraft to land on an aircraft carrier. During this test program it made 21 unarrested full-stop landings and 21 unassisted take-offs on the USS Forrestal.Peter Smith presents us with a book he refers to as "a warm tribute to the C-130 in all its many facets." It is, indeed, a comprehensive story of the C-130 Hercules. Smith provides a record of the aircraft's varied uses from gunship to hospital ship, from airborne assault to search and rescue, from fuel tanker to firefighter. He provides details on the scores of variants developed between the C-130A to the C-130J Super Hercules. Smith shows us that the C-130 has been successfully deployed from the desert landing strips and jungle terrain to the frozen ice pack in Antarctica. Not to be overlooked, the civilian versions and their markets are covered as well. To go along with the text covering particular aircraft there are tables listing thorough and detailed specifications. Unlike most other books on the C-130, this one is not divided into chapters by model or variant. Smith has taken a different approach. He does this using five chapters identified as: 1. The family of Hercules2. The versatile Hercules3. The multiple roles of the American Hercules variants4. The worldwide operators of the Hercules: military5. The worldwide operators of the Hercules: civilian Leading up to the chapters is a Preface and an Acknowledgement sections. Following the chapters is an Appendix that lists: 1. Model summary2. Model list3. C-130: major sub-contractors4. Verifiable losses of C-130s5. Museum Hercules6. Chase the Herk: strange happenings7. Latest USAF C-130 Serial Numbers To conclude the book, Smith has provided a select bibliography and an index. There is more in this book than facts and figures. There are over 450 black and white photographs with information provided such as aircraft serial number, location and a brief description of the activity depicted. A bonus of sorts is the eight pages of color prints showing 16 C-130s in profile from various countries and in various color schemes. A block of text accompanies each plane. They are all done in 1/144 scale. The Lockheed Martin C-130 Hercules certainly provides comprehensive coverage of one of the greatest planes ever built. It is a great book for the modeler and aviation historian alike. The photographs and drawings are an excellent resource for the modeler. It would be a valuable addition to any aviation book collection. The thorough details the author has provided as well as the photographs and artwork make this book one I highly recommend. --Reviewed by: Perry Downen, IPMS# 44000 - ipmsusa3.orgThe Lockheed C-130 Hercules has set some impressive records over the years, with the most recent being the aircraft in production the longest (having taken the title from the Antonov An-2). This book from Crécy purports to be the complete history of this venerable transport aircraft, but for an aircraft that is both still in service and still in production, it can hardly be considered a complete history, as that history is still be written. Still, this book does a great job of describing the story of the C-130, from development through to its current status worldwide. The book begins with a brief overview of the development of the C-130 and the evolution of the variants. The description of the different variants includes dimensional information as well as some of the main operators of the type. Following that introduction is a chapter detailing the operational capabilities of the C-130. While many recognize that it is a qualified transport aircraft, this section covers some of the lesser known operational qualities of the Hercules. The book finishes with a separate chapter on US C-130 operations and two chapters on international operators, one for military and one for civilian. The book is not just text, though. Throughout the book are plenty of photos, covering the enormous range of colors and markings found on the C-130. Although I say color, you will have to rely on other research to document that, as all the photos presented in this book are in black and white. A small section of color profile illustrations scratches the surface of the variety of marking schemes for the Hercules. --Chris Banyai-Riepl - internetmodeler.com
