The US Navy Blue Angels flight demonstration team is welcoming back to service the famous “Fat Albert” C-130 Hercules as the logistics and transport aircraft for the unit. Fat Albert has always been a huge fan favorite at Blue Angels airshows featuring a Jet Assisted Takeoff (JATO).

Fat Albert underwent a ten-month preplanned Periodic Maintenance Interval (PMI), which allowed for her to go through extensive maintenance checks and repairs that are required every five years.
