A wingless C-130B Hercules is towed down Hercules Drive on 20 August 2010 prior to installation as a static display on the grounds of the 145th Airlift Wing, the North Carolina Air National Guard unit at the Charlotte/Douglas Airport outside of Charlotte. The aircraft, sporting a Vietnam War-era camouflage scheme, underwent hundreds of hours of refurbishment prior to the move. Now in its permanent place, the aircraft’s wings, engines, and propellers will be reinstalled.
