Lockheed C-130H Hercules, A97-010, Call sign ‘Mambo 34’
36 Squadron RAAF, MEAO (Iraq)
This Hercules was not initially assigned to the first detachment in the MEAO, but was retained in theatre and used for day missions in support of Australian Special Forces. The temporary battle damage repair patch, resulting from an earlier unloading incident during an Afghan mission, was still apparent at the time of this depiction, 24 April 2003.
