This photo shows the largest C-130J formation ever flown

Twenty C-130Js belonging to the 317th Airlift Group from Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, set the world record for the largest C-130J formation ever flown in a single formation.

As said, this was a Super Hercules record. The question is: anybody know which Sqn holds the record for the largest formation of C-130 (of all types)?

    Beautiful shot! But far from the WWII formations over UK or Normandy!

      M346, You would be talking about B17 and B24 formations. Or even C47 formations.
