Airplane of the Month – Hercules C-130E

The C-130E Hercules was produced from 1962-1974 by Lockheed Martin. Over forty models and variants of the ‘Herk’ C-130 series were produced. C-130E Hercules served the Royal Canadian Air Force in a variety of ways, from transporting troops to search and rescue to delivering humanitarian aid. It functioned equally as well in extreme cold and hot weather.

Here are some facts about the C-130E Hercules:

  • Wingspan: 40.41 m (132.6 ft)
  • Length: 29.79 m (97.7 ft)
  • Height: 11.73 m (38.5 ft)
  • Range: 7,222 km
  • Top speed: 556 km/h (345 mph)

Canada's longest-serving C-130E Hercules aircraft officially retired in April 2016 and is now part of the Canada Aviation and Space Museum's permanent collection.
