Crewing C-130s for 21 years through the 80s, 90s and early 00s I've been a lot of places and have a few pic's to share from those travels. Most if not all will be film shots with my beloved Olympus OM-10 and Ricoh 35mm cameras.

B-57 Canberra, Brindisi, Italy, 1986

I know, its crocked. We were taxiing past them and had to hurry to get the shot.

Here's another view and it does look to be a RAF bird. Just above the right wing you can see the top of a circle painted on the aft part of the fuse.
