A later support plane for the Army Parachute Team "Golden Knights" is shown demonstrating a short field landing at the 1985 Dobbins AFB air show. During the war in Vietnam, though the C-130 was considered the most versatile transport, the Caribou (and also the C-123 Provider) was very useful in operating from "airstrips" (often nothing more than wide paths carved out of the vegetation) that were too short for the Herk. This one has more color than the earlier one, and the directional smoke is still on!
