Today I also got to tour Fat Albert. Fat Albert is the C-130 that goes with the Blue Angels all around the country. It's usually flown by Marines and is pretty cool. It doesn't exactly do barrel rolls, like the Blue Angels, but it can do some awesome stuff. Check out this video about Fat Albert. They're having an Air Show at our base in April and I was hoping to see the JATO takeoff because it is amazing (watch the video), but the wonderful Capt. Blanton that gave us our tour said they're not doing that stunt anymore because the jet fuel packs are getting harder to find or something like that. Anyway, my hubby will eventually fly an Air Force C-130 so it was fun to walk around inside the plane and check it out.
