The Lockheed C-130 Hercules Flyover from Fort Benning to Montgomery

For the last several weeks these C-130’s have been flying directly over our property, at about 1,000 feet off the ground.  While they are not as loud as an F-14 with afterburners fired, they can really beat the surrounding air, especially when flying in pairs.  That’s just what they did last night at about 1:30am, felt like the windows were going to break.

This shot was taken about 15 miles farther into their flight path, almost directly over AUO (Auburn University Regional Airport) around 6pm.  I am only drawing the conclusion they are flying from Fort Benning to Montgomery, but it is pretty cool to see them flying overhead, just not at 2am.
