The first photo of 69-5828 to be posted into FA's photo gallery captures this Lockheed MC-130P Combat Shadow just off runway 16L and on the climb into an overcast sky over Reno Tahoe International. It has been flying sorties out of RNO for several days, and I've been snapping hundreds of clicks of it. These Combat Shadow Hercs have now become quite rare in the air. The USAF retired their last two a couple of years ago. 69-5828 is one of four MC-130Ps still being flown out of KNUQ (Moffett) by the 129th Rescue Wing of the California ANG, but its days (as well as the days of the other three) are numbered.
