Nice shot! Possible a C130E? The C130J has the newer "scimitar" prop blades.
[edit] I checked Wikipedia - either a B or H. From Planespotters, 725 is a C130B.

Rob, thanks for checking up which Herk version is this.

The RSAF definitely not operating any J version, that's for sure.

In fact, not sure what they be replacing these Herks with.

Assuming if wanting something with similar, likely will go for the J version.

The RSAF's Herks are very very old by now.

Thank you for the encouragement.
That was about the best i could do.

Whatever 'negatives' about the images, is down to lack of skills on me, nothing on the lens, as that lens is superb.

Will share more, but do pardon the lack of quality of the images.
If I may comment as an aviation shooter as well, the image is fine! Your settings correct (I might have gone with a bit higher SS but 1/640 is not bad for such a giant). The light isnít so good, I see overcast and a bit of backlit so overall a very nice picture given the situation

The B models would be very old. I may be possible to upgrade the H models to J.

Cool! That one is a C130H. Even so, it was delivered to the RSAF in 1980 and is flying with 122SQN! It's almost 40 years old. Apparently they have been upgraded with new avionics. It's a bit odd to see shiny paint on a C130. Normally the paintwork is matte to reduce visibility.

Nicely captured.
And with the deep blue skies, very beautiful.

Flight of four RSAF F-15SGs.

The one at top of image, seems to have gold\yellow coloured text near the cockpit bubble.
