Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Tegucigalpa (Honduras), September 2008. 558 just returned from a mission. Think this is the only one Honduras still has in flyable condition.

Santa Lucia (Mexico), September 2008. This was one of five C-130s taking part in the Independence Day Parade last Tuesday. Just hope they are going to cut the grass next time :-)

Given I live not far from Lyneham it would be rude if I didn't add a few RAF C-130s. Two old shots and a couple of newer examples. Apologies if anyone has covered these before.

Hi all,

not as exotic as some of the Herc's posted before, but still looking good with its special tail. Pictures taken at Florennes a month or so ago, while waiting for a TLP2008-4 mission.
