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.

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":

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.
