H-4 Hercules omitted?[edit]

Seems like a glaring omission on this page of a link(in "See Also" or in the "for other" section) or mention of the Spruce Goose given that both aircraft were designed with troop and vehicular transport in mind, both had development funding provided by the military, both shared the name "Hercules", and both were from similar time periods(the goose being the earlier "Hercules" named aircraft). Personally I've always wondered if Lockheed used the "Hercules" moniker under instruction/inspiration given the reputation of the Hughes Hercules and their desire to establish a pattern of design(or a specific class of plane).

Keyhole (KH) Satellite Film Retrieval[edit]

Why is there no mention in the Operational section of the use of C-130's for mid-air retrieval of Keyhole satellite film packages? This was before the use of electronic imaging in orbital reconnaissance satellites, when they were still using high resolution film cameras. It seems to be a glaring omission, especially since there is a photograph (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:KH_film_recovery.jpg) illustrating this in the page. Can anyone provide documented text explaining this? Gil gosseyn (talk) 07:00, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

It has been omitted because you have not added it yet. "The encyclopedia anyone can edit" is not just an empty slogan, if you have good sources you are welcome to add the missing information. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 07:10, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
Probably better in one of the variant articles like Lockheed HC-130. MilborneOne (talk) 08:26, 10 May 2015 (UTC)

External links modified[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just added archive links to one external link on Lockheed C-130 Hercules. Please take a moment to review my edit. If necessary, add {{cbignore}} after the link to keep me from modifying it. Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

When you have finished reviewing my changes, please set the checked parameter below to true to let others know.

Question? Archived sources still need to be checked

62-1857 on display[edit]

62-1857 http://www.carolinasaviation.org/military/mc-130-hercules

interesting about 62-1857 is the history Vietnam. The aircraft was assigned to Keesler Airforce Base MS. when task for operation eagle claw. Aircraft has inflight refueling was needed for mission. Aircraft was used during gulf war and in support of Kosovo.

I am not good at writing a good article but I do feel this aircraft does have a very interesting history. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:306:25F0:B689:61AA:FBA5:1318:CE70 (talk) 16:00, 4 October 2015 (UTC)

ASW version notable?[edit]

Or is it just vaporware? Hcobb (talk) 19:07, 15 November 2015 (UTC)

Incidents paragraph[edit]

It does not contain all accidents and incidents, instead there is only subjective opinion about reliability of this aircraft. In past 12 months (today july 11. 2016.) this aircraft had 3 crashes. Facts are more important so this paragraph need more information. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 95.85.159.187 (talk) 14:40, 11 July 2016 (UTC)
