UH, the reason that I misidentified the aircraft was a rather stupid one, but it didn't have to do with a typographical error. It was simply that I saw that the aircraft windows seemed to include several other than the standard ones that one sees in the most modern aircraft. Hence, I automatically assumed that the aircraft was a C-130. However, I did not realize that the additional windows above those at eye-level were actually "eyebrow" windows that were present in KC
-135's. It was an elementary error on my part and I should have checked my facts before going with my assumption.

Typo or just a identification mistake. I've done it too.
Jake, I wish I could say it was a simple typo, but it was much dumber than that on my part. UH is right -- if it had been a typo, I would have written something akin to KC
-130, not C-130.
Thanks to both of you for your interest in this thread.
What's fair is fair.
