Back to the future C-130 flying unit gets glimpse of its future when upgraded aircraft returns home for inspection

Boeing test pilot Mike Leone left, and Capt. Breanna Lankford, right, sit in the cockpit of an Avionics Modernization Program modified C-130H after it arrives at the 908th Airlift Wing at Maxwell Air Force Base in Montgomery, Ala. May 31, 2007. The reservists of the 908th AW willl be the first wing in the Air Force equipped with AMP upgraded aircraft. The upgraded C130s look the same on the outside but the cockpit looks dramatically different. The analog instrumentation familiar to generations of pilots is gone, replaced by six liquid crystal flat screen monitors under two plastic "heads up" displays that allow pilots to get the information they need without searching for it below eye level.
