The first time I visited Dobbins AFB was a Friday trip away from college studies. By a bizarre coincidence, it also marked the arrival of one of the most mysterious and rare versions of the Herk, the YMC-130H, or Credible Sport. Seen here in the overhead for a 11 landing (and trailing an instrument drogue from the tail), it had come from Eglin AFB, FL w/ an Armament Div. A-10 escort, and would later reside in the Robins AFB museum collection. It was to rescue the Iran hostages; it's the only in-flight image of Credible Sport I've ever seen.
