Berlin Air Corridor Aircraft
C-130E-II 62-1828 had fake "MAC" (Military Airlift Command) titles on the vertical tail. This specialised ELINT aircraft, nearly indistinguishable from a stock C-130E, was based at Rhein-Main. In 1975, the 7405th Support Squadron became the 7405th Operations Squadron and moved to that new base. The wire antenna running from the very top of the vertical tail seems to be a non standard equipment. Other antennas can be found on stock C-130E.
