General Note

  • The C-130, affectionately known as Fat Albert, carries 25,000 pounds of cargo, 45,000 pounds of fuel, and can cruise at 320 knots (approximately 350 miles per hour) at 27,000 feet. Four Allison turboprop-engines producing more than 16,000-shaft horsepower provide the C-130 with power in addition to its Jet-Assisted Take-Off (JATO) capabilities. At select show sites, eight solid-fuel rockets (attached four on each side) allow Fat Albert to take off from a 1,500 foot runway (as compared to 2,500 feet for the turboprop engines), climbing at a 45-degree angle to attain an altitude of 1,500 feet in seconds.
