Hercules

Summary

In war, natural disaster, or humanitarian emergency, for over fifty years the RAF’s Hercules force was the first in and last out of any crisis faced by the UK government around the globe. The US-built Lockheed C-130 Hercules flew dangerous missions in the Vietnam War before entering service with air forces around the world, as an aerial tanker, gunship, spyplane, air-sea rescuer and bomber. Former RAF Hercules Captain Scott Bateman opens the cockpit for an insider’s account this legendary flying machine in peace and war, at home and abroad.
