AF bids farewell to Combat Talon I
Two of the last five MC-130E Combat Talon Is sit on the Duke Field flightline adorned with American flags for the aircraft’s retirement ceremony April 25. Aircrew, maintainers and many others turned out to remember and bid farewell to the Talon I on its official retirement from the Air Force. The last five Talons, located at Duke Field, will be delivered to the “boneyard” at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, N.M., by mid-May 2013. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. Samuel King Jr.)
