For years, the Blue Angels had a C-130 airplane named Fat Albert. A better nickname might have been Refrigerator Perry, because even though the plane was big and heavy, it sure could move. Fat Albert was a fan favorite, performing in front of millions of people all over the world. You can bet that every man in the crowd carrying an extra few pounds felt a kinship with Albert, a big guy that gets it done. But it wasn’t just a showplane. The C-130 transported Blue Angels team members and their gear, and on occasion even transported Navy pilots killed in the line of duty. The Navy retired Fat Albert in 2019 with plans to introduce a new version by 2021.
