Heavy Metal

U.S. Air Commandos from the 27th Special Operations Aircraft Maintenance Squadron position themselves for the final flight of "Heavy Metal," an AC-130H Spectre gunship, prior to its retirement April 8, 2015 at Cannon Air Force Base, N.M. Heavy Metal was the gunship featured in the first Transformers film as it was called in to "bring the rain" in order to protect special forces operators. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt.
