Hercules Photo CD Review

By Michael Benolkin

Date of Review February 2013 Title Hercules
Publisher Aero Research Published 2013
ISBN None Format 210 very high resolution JPEGs
MSRP (USD) $12.95



Aero Research has released this nice monograph covering all varieties of the Lockheed Hercules. This disc is of special interest as it contains images of several aircraft that I crewed many years ago as well as a number of familiar 'faces' from my travels. As with the previous releases, many of these images are provided at 4000 pixels wide. All of the photos are color and all are out of various collections. Some were taken while the aircraft were in service.

So what kind of aircraft will you find on the disc?

  • AC-130A
  • AC-130E
  • AC-130H
  • AC-130U
  • C-130A
  • C-130B
  • C-130E
  • C-130F
  • C-130H
  • C-130H-30
  • C-130K
  • C-130T
  • DC-130A
  • DC-130E
  • EC-130E

  • NC-130A
  • NC-130B
  • NC-130H
  • RC-130A
  • WC-130E

For the modeler, you'll see lots of good details and color information for tackling that next C-130 conversion project.

This is a nice selection of imagery that you won't find available in such clarity and size. This title is recommended!
