Israeli AF C-130 at Brize

Hi all, With no flying at Old Warden, nipped down to the local instead to catch the pair of Israeli Hercules landing. "Israeli AF 305" was the pick of the two as the sun came out on approach. Cheers. https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn2/t31.0-8/10321687_10152088649587742_741137...
