While I was there I was privileged to visit and take a tour of Little Rock Air Force Base,which is the home of the C-130 Combat Airlift. I’ve always been into military planes so being able to see some of them in person and on display there was really fun. You really don’t understand the true beauty and power of our military planes until you see them in person and get to stand next to one.
