Fat Albert

The United States Navy Blue Angels perform aerobatics throughout the US and Canada in F/A 18E Super Hornets but the opening act is a C-130 Hercules, nicknamed Fat Albert.

Used to carry support personnel, spare parts, and equipment from show to show makes Fat Albert a “must have” for the flights of the Blue Angels to succeed as they race through the skies.
