C-130 Hercules

By TheAviator
This US Air Force Lockheed C-130 Hercules was caught landing at RAF Mildenhall. Sadly opportunities to get photos like this won't be around after a few years as the base is due to close.

During the mid - 1960s I was a regular on C130s. Must be well designed as there has been no bad news about these good looking old birds. In and out of Alert on Ellsmere Island, N.W.T. Seems they may outlast Mindenhall if the word above comes true. Yesterday we were taking harlequin and loon photos at Kin beach Comox and an F-18 surprise hi-power take-off shook us up...Shocking! but fun though. Your Herc so close to the ground looks great here.

So that's what it is! One flies past my kitchen window (Rhodes, Greece) twice a week. Noisy and a bit of smoke, but interesting to see and it breaks the monotony of tui's fleet. Nice capture.
