As a militia air force formation, the Minnesota Air National Guard is an element of the Minnesota National Guard alongside the Minnesota Army National Guard. The Minnesota Air National Guard has two primary units located at Duluth International Airport and at Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport. The Minnesota Air National Guard has also been active in the Global War on Terror since September 11, 2001. Interestingly, the 109th Airlift Squadron was actually the first ever Air National Guard unit in the whole of the USA. Members of the former 109th Aeromedical Squadron came up with the idea of putting these particular markings from a Convair C-131 Samaritan air evacuation aircraft onto the C-130. Now Dragon is newly launching this C-130 Hercules model as a commemoration of this remarkable unit of the Air National Guard (ANG).

Lockheed C-130H Hercules

Designed to function as a troop, medical evacuation and cargo transport aircraft, the C-130 Hercules was first flown on August 23rd, 1954. Built by Lockheed and capable of over 40,000 lbs of payload, this four-engine turboprop aircraft is quite possibly the most versatile tactical transport in existence. Its modern roles include airlift and airdrop, electronic surveillance, search and rescue, space-capsule recovery, helicopter refueling and aerial attack. Capable of takeoffs and landings from unprepared runways, the C-130 has even landed and taken off from a carrier deck without benefit of arresting gear or catapults.
