"Museum of Aviation" The AC-130A Spectre is a C-130 that was converted to a side-firing gunship, primarily for night attacks against ground troops. The AC-130A was equipped with two 40mm cannons, two 20mm Vulcan cannons and two 7.62mm miniguns. The Museum's AC-130A was accepted by the USAF in September 1956 as a standard cargo aircraft. In 1970 it was converted to an AC-130A gunship and flew numerous combat missions in SE Asia in the 70's and during Desert Storm in 1991. [Nikon D700 / AF-S Nikkor 16-35mm]
