The C-130 Hercules fleet is an essential strategic asset to the State of Israel with a long legacy including many operations, the most famous of which is Operation Entebbe. 

The Elephant Squadron and the Yellow Bird Squadron, which united as one Hercules squadron, are both veteran squadrons flying the C-130 Hercules for over 40 years through many successful operations.

It’s a development that was set in motion years ago, a significant process of combining air force powers.

Watch the sortie across the entire southern region of Israel, which proved the successful union between the two Hercules squadrons into one big squadron.
