What a great surprise. My first C130 from the FAV. This is my treat for Christmas and as a Happy New Year Gift to the Venezuelian Spotters!
Very rare visitor to Popayán. This Hércules landed, went to the ramp, unloaded some stuff and got back in the air in less than 15 minutes. Very lucky to have seen this bird here.
This Hercules looks gorgeous in the golden hour, with a special flavor thanks to those vortices.
Short final, 15kt crosswind, after parachute exercises over Esmeraldas.
With a sticker commemorating the 90th anniversary of the Colombian Air Force.
Just when the day was ending the ligth is great.
Getting into position for takeoff on runway 17L.
Coming back to SCL after practice for a display flight.
Delivered to the Air Force in February 1959 and retired in 1994 with only 11,000 hours logged on the frame.
