P-3C-II Orion

A Lockheed P-3C-II Orion of the Royal Netherlands Navy arrives for the Air Tattoo.

Lockheed-Martin C-130J Hercules

On arrival, not too many people probably recognized this as a brand new C-130J of the Italian Air Force.

Boeing E-3A Sentry AWACS

A NATO E-3A Sentry pictured on arrival.

Grumman Gulfstream III

A fairly unusual sight in the UK, a Gulfstream III from 721 Sqn of the Royal Danish Air Force.

Lockheed C-130B Hercules

Even rarer, in fact the first visit to a UK show by a C-130B Hercules of the Romanian Air Force.

Lockheed L1011-500 TriStar K1

A nice shot of an RAF TriStar K1 of 216 Sqn pictured lining up for take-off.

Lockheed HC-130P Hercules

An HC-130P Hercules of  USAF Reserve Command.

Boeing E-6A Mercury

Last year it was an E-6B but this year the US Navy sent this E-6A Mercury.

Lockheed C-130H Hercules

One of the most attractive Hercules you're ever likely to see, a C-130H from 3 Sqn of the Royal Jordanian Air Force.

Boeing C-17A Globemaster III

Making its first appearance at an Air Tattoo was one of the RAF's recently acquired C-17A Globemaster III's assigned to 99 Sqn.

Lockheed EC-130E(RR) 'Rivet Rider' Hercules

The Hercules always looks workmanlike but with the additional array of aerials and other add on's the EC-130E version looks quite aggressive. Seen here is an example from 193rd SOS of the Pennsylvania ANG.
