On May 8, 2018, the 4th SOS said goodbye to an amazing aircraft, tail #89-0511. Some of the most noteworthy stories this aircraft holds is the "Lost Boys" crew of which Gen. Holt was the aircraft commander for 2 deployments. This crew was the first United States Air Force aircrew/aircraft to sink a maritime combat surface vessel during a war effort since WWII. All previous vessels sunk had been by the Army Air Corps. Additionally, 89-0511 was one fo the gunships to participate in "hit night," the first night of attacks in Afghanistan for Operation Enduring Freedom in 2001. Finally, 89-0511 set the record for the highest altitude ever flown by an AC-130U at 31,000 feet!
