There was a strange C-130 parked across the other side of runway 17R at Calgary International today which has got me intrigued ( I was watching it from the terminal where I was working). For starters, it was parked on Million Air's ramp (military aircraft usually go down to Apron 6 and sit on the Shell building ramp). Then I noticed it had no markings that you could see, and I watched it most of the day in different light as the sun went over us. I could see that it had what could be a serial number, this was because it was a darker grey to the quite light grey the aircraft was painted all over with. Except the nose radome, that was black. I could see on the side it was facing me that it had an oval or oblong bump, just behind and a little lower than the low cockpit window.

This one, sorry about the size, but my cell phone was zoomed in to the max and then to get it to show here I had to crop it

A "Company" plane, perhaps?   ;)

Officially doesn't exist any more.  More than likely the owners of Air America...  ;)

Actually a Bell proposal for a a STOL jet transport in the same competition that led to the YC-14 and YC-15, these never-the-less give cool ideas for jet C-130s:

I was reading about those on SPF, the top one was to have Harrier style engines.

One to confuse people even though it is real:  C-130H with 8 bladed propellors (which you can get in multiple scales BTW):

Interesting --- but what does it do -- it's got bumps and scoops and radomes all over it

I was reading the link about those, they had to do something because the NG had just about run out of the RATO units which were needed to get them off the ground when down under, and they're from the 50's and there's no more left, so they re-engined them plus the props.
