Lockheed C-130T 'Hercules' flown by the USMC. Known as "Fat Albert Airlines" it supports the USN Blue Angels. The Herc is flown by Major Stefan Mueller, Major Matt McGath, and Captain Russ Campbell.

At select show sites, Fat Albert demonstrates its Jet-Assisted Take-Off (JATO) capability. Eight solid-fuel rockets are attached to the sides of the aircraft, four on each side. The rockets allow Fat Albert to take off within 1,500 feet, climb at a 45-degree angle, and attain an altitude of 1,500 feet in seconds.
