Herc Blast..!!

U.S. Air Force Maintenance and Explosive Ordinance Disposal personnel from the 447th Air Expeditionary Group prepare to place explosive charges on the wings of a C-130 Hercules aircraft that are designed to divide the plane in smaller sections so it can be moved in Baghdad, Iraq, July 7, 2008.

Civil engineers at Sather Air Base, Iraq, use controlled detonations to separate the forward section of a damaged C-130 Hercules so it can be moved.

The C-130 made an emergency landing in a field north of the Baghdad International Airport shortly after take-off on June 27. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Jeffrey Allen/Released)
