The C-130 is one of the most versatile aircraft ever created, and its low-level flying capabilities are well known. This video, shot somewhere in Alaska, shows the “Herkybird” doing its low-level thing in the most dramatic fashion, skimming at high-speed just feet above ground.
The C-130 shown in the video appears to belong to Lynden Air Cargo who operates a civilian variant of the type (L-382) in Alaska. They are well known to be pro Hercules operators that are capable of a whole slew of missions.
These include carrying up to 48,000 pounds of cargo and personnel into rough and highly isolated fields around the Alaska bush, and well, apparently some awesome flybys too!
