I did tech school at Chanute in 1987, then worked avionics on C-130s at Keesler AFB in Biloxi Miss. Great times on great aircraft.

The C133 - several fatal accidents involving them. They were sometimes seen at Dyess AFB, Tx bringing in Atlas missiles for the missile sites around Dyess. A very tight fit coming off the plane.
