The Lockheed C-130 Hercules or more affectionately known as the ?Herky? bird is pretty much the mainstay of the RAF?s transport fleet, we have chosen to feature both the common place C-130H model and the new C-130J model, which entered service in 1998. The cover has been flown in a Hercules from RAF Lynheam to Split and then to RAF Bruggen in support of Operation Lodestar.
