For no reason at all: C-130 videos!

The C-130 is a pretty awesome airplane. I had wanted to write a much longer and more detailed article about them…and I will…but I’m just way too tired right now.

So instead, here are some Herculean videos! Enjoy.

We’ll begin with this amazing video shot from the cabin of Fat Albert as the crew practices their airshow routine. Simply astonishing air work, and some of the BEST CRM I’ve ever seen!

Of course, we have to see the classic Flare Angel:

Short-field takeoff:

Assault landing, Martha’s Vineyard:

Some AMAZING air work at the Paris Air Show 2011:

And finally, a promotional video from Lockheed Martin about the C130J. Includes aerial applications and some neat HUD glare in the exterior shots that give the -J eyes:
