MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The 934th Airlift Wing is Minnesota’s only Air Force Reserve unit.
“The Global Vikings,” who fly out of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, operate eight large C-130 H3 cargo planes, which are used to move supplies and people.
Each of the four engines on a C-130 H3 generates 1,000 horsepower.
WCCO photojournalist Gordy Leach got to ride along with the 934th on a training mission Tuesday.
Watch the video above to see the unit carry out a simulated cargo drop at a base in Wisconsin.
