MC-130P Combat Shadow arrives at Sheppard

An MC-130P Combat Shadow from the 129th Rescue Wing at Moffett Federal Field, Calif., taxis to Bldg. 1360 at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, March 21, 2018. The aircraft, which will be used as a ground instructional training aircraft by the 362nd and 363rd Training squadrons, has served in a search and rescue role in most recent years, but also as part of a program in which it snagged film canisters jettisoned from satellites that were re-entering the Earth's atmosphere.
