The Lockheed C-130 Hercules may not be a cutting edge aircraft, but it’s more than sufficient for capturing stunning images of fighter jets. Why? It’s capable of using unprepared runways for takeoffs and landings, while its versatile airframe has found uses in a variety of other roles, including as a gunship (AC-130), for airborne assault, search & rescue, scientific research support, weather reconnaissance, aerial refueling, maritime patrol, aerial firefighting, as well as photography. Read more for two videos showing why.

Saudi aviation photographer Ahmed Hader was invited by the Royal Saudi Air Force to a photo shoot during air show rehearsals in preparation for the 90th National Day of Saudi Arabia. To be more specific, he was lucky enough to photograph two F-15 Eagles, a Eurofighter Typhoon, and a Panavia Tornado.
