Lockheed WC-130K Hercules W2

Making a rare but appreciated appearance at Cottesmore was the Defence Research Agency's meteorological research Hercules W2, affectionately known as 'Snoopy'.

Boeing E-6B Mercury

An extremely rare UK appearance was made by this US Navy E-6B Mercury as it tracks down the runway prior to departing the show.

Lockheed C-130H Hercules

The Royal Jordanian Air Force have traditionally supported the tattoo with this year being no exception, as demonstrated by the spirited departure by one of their Hercules transports.

Antonov AN-72 'Coaler'

A welcome appearance was made by this Antonov AN-72 'Coaler' from the Ukrainian Air Force.

Lockheed C-130 Hercules

An excellent shot of a Royal Norwegian Air Force Hercules arriving at the tattoo. For pictures taken in bright conditions Fuji Velvia is second to none.

Douglas DC-4

It was nice once again to see the Douglas DC-4 of the South African Airways Historic Flight that last appeared at RIAT '97.

Lockheed C-130H-30 Hercules

Taking off in typical Dutch style is a C-130H-30 of the Royal Netherlands Air Force.

Boeing E-3A Sentry

After appearing at RIAT '99 it was nice to see the NATO E-3A Sentry still sporting its specially painted 50th Anniversary scheme.

Lockheed C-130 Hercules

Another special scheme, this time on a Royal Danish Air Force Hercules.

Lockheed LC-130H Hercules

Always an interesting sight, a New York Air National Guard LC-130H Hercules normally used for Arctic operations. This immaculate aircraft won the Airlift 2000 Concours d'Elegance competition.
