Description found on the print:

On 27 September 2016 the last of the final two remaining HC-130Ps in the active duty US Air Force inventory departed their home at the 550th Special Operations Squadron, Kirkland AFB, NM to be transferred into Air Force Reserve status. The HC-130P “Combat King” has been the Air Force’s only dedicated fixed wing rescue aircraft for over 50 years and is being replaced with the new HC-130J “Combat King II”.

The new planes and crews are part of a long heritage of Rescue professionals that proudly epitomise the motto:

“These things we do, that others may live”
