After being stuck on Lyneham's Roundabout for 45 mins she finally passed through Wooton Bassett. Afterwards I gambled and headed to a motorway bridge where I was rewarded. It's a sad sight, sorry if this is the wrong section!
As it isn't being dis-mantled in situ could it be destined for a museum? Be nice to see this kept as somewhere in the loft I still have the old Airfix kit of her. Nice-pics.Must have been fun driving her down that High St.

Is there a C-130K going to Cosford?
Yes there is a C-130K scheduled for Cosford, but we did believe that she was going to be flown in!
Great set of shots here, and thanks for sharing them
Great captures rick.Well worth the wait. They are the wings from 305, just the tail plane left now and i believe the rest are to be broken up on base. I haven't heard about a c-130 going to Cosford? anybody shed any light?
A tight squeeze in places! Sad to see 305 on her last trip,it would be nice if both a C1 and C3 make it to a museum although I suspect due to the size of the aircraft only one will end up being preserved.
Presumably Air & Ground will have paid peanuts for these C-130s but will now have the opportunity to charge us inordinate amounts selling the spares from these machines back to the RAF to keep the other C-130Ks going!
Museums at a guess I can see but only if they can afford them and want them - C-130 Hercules - are - Cosford, Duxford, Elvington, Airspace at Coventry, dare I say East Fortune (don't think so), Carlise, Dumfries and Galloway, NEAM Sunderland. Just a few guesses.
Lovely pictures Rick, gutted that I haven't been able to see the 2 that have gone now. Really need to try and get one, weathers not looking too good this Sunday ... And I have work! Saw them in the paper as well, nicely done!
