US and Austrian C-130's are fantastic!


It's strange given that they cancelled it from Yeovilton last week.

Another three C-130s added... real potential now for a big long line of them in the static.

ATL-2 is a belter as well. :clap:

10 C130’s confirmed! Hopefully Belgium/Qatar add to the list. That’ll be a mighty impressive sight!

Including NATO/SAC but excluding Civilians we are now at 30 Nations announced and 36 air arms (classing the USAF as one air arm).

They literally look like the RAF C-130Ks did, not least because they were RAF C-130Ks! Emphasis on the drab of olive drab...

Another fast fact which (I think) is right.

Going off the announced list we are at 131 static aircraft including 25 from the RAF and 39 flying acts (BBMF listed as separate aircraft).

The static park genuinely looks awesome. Would like to see a couple statics to top if off though (Mirages/C5 Galaxy/Skyhawk). Starting to feel as though India are not going to send anything which is a shame, given their links!

As far as I know they will all change from olive to grey, 8T-CA is grey already: https://m.planespotters.net/photo/81675 ... ules-l-382

Ah so they've gone from RAF grey, to RAF green, then to Austrian green, and now Austrian grey :)

Even more exciting...

Yes, I'm not sure you've quite grasped the nature of those "links" mind.
