U.S. combat engineers and explosive ordnance disposal service members, attached to TF Vanguard, use explosives to remove the wings off an unserviceable C-130 Hercules aircraft, July 9, on FOB Shank, in order to move the aircraft from the airfield. Emergency personnel cordoned the area as they stood ready to put out the fire and render the area safe. No one was injured in the operation.

    Dollars for donuts (before inflation and taxes)the AF won't be salvaging these parts. A chain-saw could have done the job cheaper and with less of a mess to clean up afterwards.

    Well I guess the Afghani Air Force can't use it now.

    Actually, they salvaged everything they could. Notice the engines, leading edge, nose, etc..
