The AC-130 Spectre gunship evolved into the most heavily armed aircraft
in history. It has a distinguished history and was used extensively in a
multitude of roles during the Vietnam conflict. The AC-130 also flew
combat during the USS Mayaguez incident and during Operations Urgent Fury, Frequent Wind, Just Cause, and Desert Storm. This aircraft memorial honors tradition, courage, and sacrifice of the personnel who maintained and flew Spectre gunships in the defense of freedom and especially commemorates all aircrew members who gave their lives flying in defense of freedom loving people everywhere.
