former USCG 1708, 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). Tanker 116 is seen at Sacramento Airport, still in USFS livery
