Quite a newsworthy event from Monday - the last MC-130P Combat Shadow with the 67th SOS at RAF Mildenhall departed for the USA, following the types gradual replacement by the MC-130J Commando II. Capable as they may be, I don't think the Commandos have as much charisma as the Shadows. Something about those smokey engines! Photographs of the aircraft's last sortie and comments from the pilots are in the article below. http://globalaviationresource.com/v2/2014/02/05/aviation-news-raf-mildenhalls-last-mc-130p-combat-shadow-departs/ http://globalaviationresource.com/v2/wp-content/gallery/mc-130p-leaves-mhz/thumbs/thumbs_mc-130p-final-hurrah-005.jpg http://globalaviationresource.com/v2/wp-content/gallery/mc-130p-leaves-mhz/thumbs/thumbs_1024mc130-p-for-gar-images-1.jpg
