Artist's Description

This RAAF C130-E aircraft is pictured at Bahrain in 1986. In the background is USAF C-5 Galaxy aircraft.
I have a very close association with this particular aircraft as when I was a young aiman photographer in the RAAF at Richmond, NSW in 1966 I photographed just about everything, inside and out on this newly acquired aircraft type at 37 Squadron. Exactly twenty years later when I was Head of RAAF photography and based in Canberra I, and four other senior members flew around the world in this aircraft to attend the Paris Airshow. We flew Richmond, Cocos Island, Male, Bahrain, Crete, Paris, Gander, New York, through the Grand Canyon, Los Angeles, Hawaii, Kwajalon, Richmond. Some daily legs were up to twelve hours flying time. A wonderfully reliable aircraft. In 2001 this aircraft was broken down into spares and probably sold to Pakistan.
