Nice photo of great birds. Really interesting prop blur!

Flew these in the 70's during Deep Freeze '77, '78 and '79 when the Navy's VXE6 was doing the job.

Flew the A model, called a C-130D in the early 70's. Got 42 ski landings in my logbook making landings at Dye 2 (7,600' msl) and Dye 3 (8,700' msl) on the Greenland Icecap. Dash One (aircraft handbook) had a specific note that icecap operations were to be considered a calculated risk because we usually lifted off below minimum control speed to reduce the beating the skis took from snow ridges called sastrugi. Ahhhh....the good old days.
