An interesting effect of the exposure on the props. Turbo Prop plane perhaps?

The firing of the rocket assists is very interesting. Is that only for as short field or do they always use JATO on those planes?

Editor's Note: Thanks for the comments. Yes, C-130's are turbo props. (they can even reverse and parallel park.) The JATO takeoff was initially for short field takeoffs, but are now used primarily for show. (We never used JATO in Vietnam.) Fat Albert is a Blue Angel KC-130F in the air show.

As for the exposure on that picture it is truly an interesting effect.

C-130 takes off and lands on a Carrier USS Forrestal

Thanx John
