OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ The last three C-130 Hercules cargo planes left Will Rogers Air National Guard Base in Oklahoma City for their new home Thursday.

The aircraft had been based in Oklahoma City for the past 33 years but are being moved to Pittsburgh as part of base realignment.

Members of the 137th Airlift Wing stood in line and saluted as the planes left the base.

The wing is getting a new mission of flying KC-135 Stratotankers as part of a joint mission with the 507th Refueling Wing at Tinker Air Force Base.
