The U.S. Air Force has concluded the final combat deployment of the AC-130U gunship as the service branch prepares the aircraft's successor for use, Military.com reported Wednesday. The service branch's 1st Special Operations Wing holds the two returning AC-130U or Spooky units that will remain in station as reserve aircraft.

Air Force Special Operations Command in March received the Lockheed Martin-made AC-130J Ghostrider aircraft that will succeed Spooky. USAF's 1st Special Operations Wing operates from Hurlburt Field, Fla.
