This is NOT a LC 13, FlightAware is not aware of this type aircraft as there is only one unit in the world that flies it. Go to 190th Airlift Wing web site for correct information.

That's 109th Airlift Wing (as indicated above), not the 190th. And it looks like this bird is (per Joe Baugher):

83-0491, Lockheed LC-130H-LM Hercules, For Air National Guard, (MSN 382-5010). Nose hit hole during ski takeoff at Ford Range, Antarctica Dec 4, 2003. Extensive damage to nose undercarriage. Seen on static display in 2009 and looked OK. Named "City of Albany" with 139th Airlift Squadron 109th Airlift Wing New York ANG.

Also, the ICAO aircraft code for almost all variants of the Lockheed C-130 is just: C130. As far as I can tell "LC13" is not a valid ICAO code, so FA won't recognize it.

I've seen this aircraft in the last year or so. When I entered LC-130H in "Aircraft Type" FA bounced it to LC-13
Sorry for the mis type on 190 instead of 109.
