Coulson intends to convert them into air tankers
The first of five C-130H planes that Coulson Aviation purchased from the Norwegian military was ferried Monday from Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, Arizona to Crestview, Florida. Over the last seven weeks two of the aircraft were brought back to life in order to fly them to the facility in Crestview for heavy maintenance and conversion into air tankers capable of fighting wildfires.
The airplane was crewed by Dawn, Travis, and Charlie for its uneventful 3.7 hour flight. One down, four more to go.
This aircraft is called “TY” by Coulson, but officially will be Tanker 132.
