Papa Fox is probably correct. I can put up a full length image of this
aircraft if you want to see it, Tom

Now you've gone an spoiled it!
I thought that either the planes were flying lower and closer to your
property or that you had gotten a new camera.

You are correct. An MC-130E "Combat Talon I" now flown exclusively by the
711th SOS, 919th SOW, USAFR , Duke Field (Eglin Aux Fld #3), FL. The
radome holds two antennas, one terrain avoidance, and one for the terrain
following radars. The four bolts were the attachment points for the Fulton
Recovery System "whiskers" which were removed from all the aircraft in 1999.
Until recently, both the 8th SOS, 1st SOW and the 711th flew the E model.
The 8th SOS now is back at Hurlburt Field as the first operational CV-22
Squadron.

Have "several" hours in one of these myself.

Nice picture.

Les

I got about ten photos of this aircraft as it flew past. They did about
three landings. I only photographed it once 'cause I was supposed to be
working in the yard.
I also got shots of an F-15, a T-6 III, some ospreys and an egret. Oh, I
did weed and spread mulch, Tom

Any chance of seeing the osprey and egret pictures?
