Please join the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation in celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. We are honoring Commander Neil Armstrong, a Naval Aviator and the first human to set foot on the Moon. In honor of the Apollo 11 mission and all contributions that Naval Aviation has made to the space program, we have cast a special commemorative anniversary coin that we will send you with a minimum donation of $25.00.
The last flight for C-130T, Fat Albert, was taken on May 22, 2019. Be a part of history by getting your 2019 Commemorative Fat Albert Coin. Fat Albert has served the Blue Angels honorably after more than 30,000 flight hours in 17 years and represented the United States Marine Corps to millions of fans. Entering service in the 1950s, Lockheed’s C-130 Hercules has proven a dependable, versatile aircraft for over 50 years. C-130s have flown in countless operations since their introduction, and have the longest continuous production run of any military aircraft. One of two versions of the C-130 displayed at the Museum is a TC-130G that served with the Blue Angels as the demonstration squadron’s “Fat Albert” logistics aircraft.
