HURLBURT FIELD, Fla. – An AC-130H Spectre gunship named "Wicked Wanda" flew her last flight Dec. 19 and is scheduled to officially retire in 2015. The gunship, Tail Number 6575, has deployed in nearly every conflict the U.S. has been involved in, officially and unofficially, since the end of the Vietnam War. Eventually the plane, which has served for 43 years, will be displayed in the Hurlburt Field Air Park. (Source: 1st Special Operations Wing Public Affairs, 12/23/14)
