133rd Airlift Wing Welcomes First Eight-Bladed Propeller C-130
A C-130 Hercules from the 133rd Airlift Wing taxis to a parking spot on the flight line in St. Paul, Minn., May 11, 2022. The 133rd is currently in the second phase of the modernization process, which includes transitioning the C-130s from four-bladed propellers to eight-bladed propellers. The eight-bladed propellers will deliver more power and efficiency while reducing maintenance. The completion of this phase is projected to end in September 2023.
