Default Military Type Aircraft

Anyone see the large military type aircraft flying over Lakes Region?

Flying quite low and somewhat slow. I viewed it heading North.

Thumbs up There's a Bunch of C-130s Out There...

Jet or prop? Two engines—four or SIX?

Large? I saw a Russian AN-124 flying over Manchester in Spring.

Most likely what you saw was a C-130 transport, whose deep drone can be heard overhead even when the lake is "socked-in":

"The C-130 has the longest, continuous military aircraft production run in history and one of the top three longest, continuous aircraft production lines of any type...In 2015, there were 2500 in service."

Default I saw 'em

Thursday mid afternoon while on the northeast shore of Little Bear. Two four engine turboprops flew in a tight nose to tail formation from the Broads banking over the top of Cow Island and heading up lake towards Red Hill. They were inline and only about 5-600 feet up. The roar was deep and loud and you could feel the vibration of the engines ...the sounds and sights of of freedom! I loved it
ApS, they did look like the C130 you posted but I don't recall the radar nose projection and they were in full camoflage. Does the Guard practice with Spookies?

Default C-130

Yep, they flew right over me on Cow and were definitely C-130's. Modern day "aluminum overcast".

Same as in July. Then we were out in the Broads and saw them come over Rattlesnake from the east and then turn north.

Saw two c-130's low over Center Harbor village today heading towards Holderness. Great sight. Seen them annually for several years. Love to watch them.

Default V-22 Osprey?

Just had what appeared to be 2 V-22 Osprey overhead traveling across west Center Harbor up towards Holderness. HUGE propellers. Very loud, sounded like helicopters at first.
