MC-130P Combat Shadow arrives at Sheppard

An MC-130P Combat Shadow taxis to a spot on the apron at Bldg. 1360 where it will change ownership from the California Air National Guard to the 982nd Maintenance Squadron at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, March 21, 2018. The aircraft will be converted from a search and rescue-oriented aircraft to a ground instructional training aircraft for the 362nd and 363rd Training squadrons for the duel purpose of training crew chiefs as well as armament Airmen. The aircraft's long history includes time in the '60s and '70s with the 6594th Test Group, where it was used to snag film canisters jettisoned from satellites and re-entering the earth's atmosphere.
