The first RCAF C-130E Hercules, # 10305, was delivered to No. 436 Squadron at Trenton in December 1964. It was later transferred to No. 435 Squadron in October 1973, then to No. 429 Squadron in March 1975. In March 1986 it lost its Air Transport Command livery to camouflage, but it still continues in service today at Trenton.Realistic panel lines
