First List of New 165th AW C-130s

200px-165th_Airlift_WingSavannah – In November, I wrote that the 165th AW, GA ANG was receiving newer C-130Hs to replace their current allotment of older C-130Hs. Over the last month, they’ve received two more aircraft in addition to the one I mentioned in that post. The three aircraft are 12-14 years newer than the 165th AW’s current/previous aircraft, which are/were mostly FY 80 aircraft. The three new aircraft are former Air Force Reserve Command (AFRC) and Air National Guard (ANG) aircraft from Colorado, Illinois, and West Virginia:

  • 92-0548 – C-130H, former 182nd AW, IL ANG aircraft (Mode-S ADFE83)
  • 94-6705 – C-130H-3, former 130th AW, WV ANG aircraft (Mode-S ADFDEA)
  • 94-7321 – C-130H-3, former  302nd AW, AFRC aircraft (Mode-S ADFEA1)

As far as the remaining FY 80 aircraft go, it looks like the remaining ones are:

  • 80-0320 (Mode-S AE05FF)
  • 80-0323 (Mode-S AE0602)
  • 80-0324 (Mode-S AE0603)
  • 80-0325 (Mode-S AE0604)
  • 80-0332 (Mode-S AE0606)

All three are already flying with the 165th AW, at least two of them were part of a 4-ship flight this past Saturday morning. As the other five arrive and go into service with the 165th, I’ll post updates with the tail numbers and Mode-S codes.
