MT ANG is getting C-130 upgrades

GREAT FALLS — Not many planes come through Great Falls. They certainly don’t come or go as fast as the fighter jets that used to occupy the tarmac years ago, but now the Montana Air National Guard is going through another aircraft conversion.

They are transitioning from C-130 H1 models to newer H3 models, which are about 20 years newer and provide much more for the pilots.
