Cross winds gusting to 25kts, pouring with rain and freezing cold perfect conditions for a day on the beach! RAF C130's have to work in all conditions and land on very different surfaces

Weird. Is this a landing? Then it was a nose wheel landing. If not, how comes the main gear is not on the ground?

Where is it landing exactly?

Doesn't exactly look like a runway. more like a square or something.

It's probably doing a "bump and go" with 100% flap. with this much flap and take off power the initial attitude is very flat, so, the photo probably shows the take off (not a nose wheel landing)

Reminds me of that Top Gear Episode, in which they went to the beach with 3 cars and Richard Hammond landed in a C130 on the beach and drove a Jag out the plane. Awesome dynamic photo, I love it.

Wow!! It's not a landing, it's a nose wheelie!
