Family Day draws 1,000 to Kentucky Air Guard Base

Family members of Kentucky Air Guardsmen exit the 123rd Airlift Wing's Mini C-130 after an orientation "flight" Oct. 23, 2011, during the wing's annual Family Day celebration in Louisville, Ky. The Mini C-130 is a scale replica of the Hercules transport aircraft, built on a golf-cart chassis and propelled by a 27-horsepower gasoline motor. Although incapable of flight, it can reach speeds of up to 20 mph, features working propellers, a functional cargo door, a UHF radio, a high-powered stereo system and seating for up to a dozen passengers. The replica was built from scratch by the Airmen of the Kentucky Air Guard's 123rd Maintenance Squadron. (U.S. Air Force by Maj. Dale Greer)
