Learn how the famous C-130 Hercules came about and how it was used extensively in Vietnam. Hear Lt Gen Hopper, who flew it then as young 1st Lt, discuss the concept of ‘tactical aviation’ and how hazardous resupply missions were planned and conducted. Or, as he modestly puts it “How to fly from A to B without getting shot!” Real stories from a real combat pilot. He will also talk about its more recent use in Desert Storm
