Two US warplanes photographed at Shannon today (see below). One is a US Navy C40 (Boeing 737)number 5836, and the other is a Hercules C130 number QH 3310.
The photo of the Omni air international chartered US troop carrier was taken on Sunday 4 Jan, by Shannonwatch and had probably been at the airport overnight. This combination of Hercules C130 and C40 Boeing are frequently seen at Shannon. What missions are they on and what are they carrying? Our government refuses to seek clarification.
