In honor of Veteran's Day (November 11th), our November edition of "HNL RareBirds Classic" goes back to October 2004, and the Hawai‘i Air National Guard's C-130H2 Hercules, 90-1058 (msn 382-5241), as it was on static display at the "Blues On The Bay" air show at Marine Corps Air Field Kāneʻohe Bay. This C-130H2 was assigned to the 204th Airlift Squadron "Nā Manu Ikaika" / 154th Wing at the time.
90-1058 was originally delivered to the Georgia Air National Guard in the early 1990s. It was re-assigned to the Hawai‘i Air National Guard in the mid-1990s, where it served until 2006, when the 204th transitioned to the Boeing C-17A Globemaster III. The fate of 90-1058 is unknown, if it was reassigned, or if it's sitting in storage at AMARG.
