former USCG 1709, one of 7 redundant HC-130Hs that were assigned to the US Forest Service in 2013 to be converted to Air Tankers. Instead of installing retardant tanks, the USFS only used a slip-in Modular Airborne FireFighting System (MAFFS) retardant system. In August 2018 the USFS lost interest in using the Hercules as AirTanker, and the 7 aircraft were transferred to the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE). 1709 last operated from USCG Air Station Kodiak, AK and is seen at Sacramento Airport, still in USCG livery

The first two-seat Starfighter model, the F-104B was ahead of its time in not receiving a TF designation, suggesting it was fully combat-capable. However, the F-104A's 20-mm cannon was omitted and internal fuel reduced. There were also quite a few other changes, and the definitive, FY 1957 machines had a 25 percent larger tailfin and rudder than the F-104A.

The F-111 was always a bomber, and in the end a 'strategic' variant was produced as the FB-111. This is the first FB-111 pre-production aircraft, first flown on 13 July 1968. According to some sources it ultimately became an F-111G.
