Lockheed C-130 Hercules


This is a photoshopped image of a U.S Airforce Lockheed C-130 "Hercules" from 153rd ALG out of Cheyenne, Wyoming departing Detroit Metropolitan Airport on March 26th, 2016. I added the backdrop of the airport to distinugush where it was taking off from. My view of the runway was blocked from the original photo, so thats why I blended the two together!

Thanks Victor!

It was nice to see a military takeoff at KDTW again. The other day a KC-135 refueler took off, but I missed it (cause I was working) ARGH!

HA, please do not take offense to this, but this looks like a photoshopped picture. The shadows of the horizontal stabilizer on the 744 and under the wing of the C-130 seem to not match.

Scot is correct. This is photoshopped in. The C-130 really did take off from Detroit Metro, however my angle on the craft really didn't identify that it was at Detroit Metro. In other words it was just a dull blue sky. I added the airport as a backdrop to associate the two together.

Sorry my photoshop skills aren't the greatest lol
