Herculean formation: This is what a (loose) "right echelon" of seven C-130 Hercules looks like
Taken during the recent MAFEX Exercise, attended by nearly 70 cargo planes in Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada, the following image shows C-130J Hercules planes from across the Air Force fly over the Nevada Test and Training Range on May 23, 2012.
For operational purposes, the C-130s were flying a sort-of right echelon loose formation.
