The Macon & Akron

My Yahoo news feed had this article embedded. So it seems C-130s are being evaluated for a similar mission. https://www.yahoo.com/news/uss-akron-am ... 00443.html

C-130's have carried and launched drones for decades. I've never heard of them recovering drones in flight, though.

I was a C-130 crew chief for 14 years, then a flight engineer for another 6, so I know my way around the old Herkybird pretty well.
If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. -Psalm 139
