Absolutely BRILLIANT photograph!!! Congratulations, and thanks for sharing!

It's the Hercules of the Blue Angels ?

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 20, 2010:
RATO is as loud as it looks. Pretty awesome though, if you have to get off the ground NOW.

A visitor from Mauritius posted Fri July 3, 2009:
I suppose the acronym should be RATO (rocket) as opposed to JATO. I wonder what this bird sounds like in this configuration (I've watched/marshaled a number of C130's in my time in the SAAF)

A visitor from - posted Fri May 8, 2009:
What a treat to see the Fat Albert performing a JATO takeoff in the dim skies!

A visitor from - posted Mon March 9, 2009:
Fantastic picture.

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 16, 2008:
Gotta love JATO

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 8, 2008:
"And There's Faaaaaaaaaaatttt Albert" Perfect timing Ian.

A visitor from Bahrain posted Fri May 23, 2008:
Wow!!!!its just amazing.although i never really understood wat that fire is for....

A visitor from New Zealand posted Sat May 3, 2008:
I love jato on a herk, especially fat albert.

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 23, 2007:
Up. Up and away from the ground fire.

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 14, 2006:
'Spose that'll void the warranty? (loved the "Oh my gosh!!!!!!!!!" comment below...cracked me up)

A visitor from United States posted Sat November 25, 2006:
I love those JATOs. I wish I could put a couple on my 172.

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 24, 2006:
Note to Inflight Catering: No more bean burritos for the passengers! Seriously, though, this is a very nice shot; very dynamic!

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 24, 2006:
Use to work on Fat Albert while stationed at VMGR-234 in Ft Worth. Brings memories back. Not a T model but I believe a E model C-130.

A visitor from Singapore posted Fri August 18, 2006:
Airpower is one of America's many forte and the Blue Angels are Nonpareil. I Never tire of seeing "Fat Albert's" incredible angle of attack JATO assisted demo in "The Blue's" airshow. Thanks, Ian, for sharing a Great capture here.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed August 16, 2006:
I've only just found this, it's brilliant!!!! Great capture man!

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 13, 2006:
This shot is an outstanding imagine of America's air power!

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 12, 2006:
Fat Albert is my Hero. Awsome display of a technology that is not used often, and seen by the "common man" even less

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 12, 2006:
I like the contrast of the photo, the effect it has. It reminds me of one of my friends' works

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 12, 2006:
The angle of climb is amazing if it as actually as it looks. that would be a ride!

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 12, 2006:
The contrast of the white flame jets against the darkened aircraft is eyecatching

A visitor from Greece posted Fri August 11, 2006:
Glorious

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 11, 2006:
Clarity and impression of power and technology. Lighting is very good,

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 11, 2006:
Beautiful profile shot

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri August 11, 2006:
Great contrast night vs rocket's light. Besides that, you don't get to see a pic like this every day.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri August 11, 2006:
Not everyone can get a photo like this. either good management, or even better luck, just wish i had taken it

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 11, 2006:
What happens to the boosters once the aircraft has achieved level flight? Do they fall off? Or are they served as an appetizer during the in-flight movie?

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 11, 2006:
Great shot . . . however, the reason for the four and not the five is because of the lackluster background.

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 11, 2006:
Mmm... JATO. Closest thing most pilots ever experience to a rocket launch. Wheee.

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 11, 2006:
Good view of a dangerous but necessary activity

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 11, 2006:
Nice!

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 11, 2006:
Exactly - the more detail the better! crisp and clear image, even in low light. how odd, however, to see a rocket-assisted propjet

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 11, 2006:
No matter how far we go with new tech, the C130 will always be one of my favorite planes

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 11, 2006:
Great shot!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri August 11, 2006:
Cool lighting.

A visitor from United States posted Fri August 11, 2006:
The contrast of the rockets and the twilight.

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 30, 2006:
It's the "Top Secret" Fat Albert at most Blue Angels airshows. It is the ONLY C-130 that uses JATO these days. If they all don't fire, you're in for a bad ride, which is why Fat Albert is the only one to use it!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri June 9, 2006:
Cool i like that rocket engines.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat June 3, 2006:
Veyr nice...is this the 'top secret' c130 that has a rocket assisted take off and STOl capabilities, or are the rockets there to make it lokky prettiful?

A visitor from Mexico posted Sun May 14, 2006:
A hurry deliver to the space

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed April 12, 2006:
Climbing like a homesick angel, outstanding !!!

A visitor from - posted Thu April 6, 2006:
A great night shot with the bright rockets providing added color.

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 30, 2006:
Oh my gosh!!!!!!!!!
I hope everyone is alright after that. How did it catch on fire?

A visitor from Canada posted Thu March 23, 2006:
Was in the airforce and was part of jato. just love it.

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 23, 2006:
Awesome view of a C-130

A visitor from United States posted Sun March 12, 2006:
Crewed c130s for twenty years always a soft spot when i see a working picture

A visitor from Germany posted Thu March 9, 2006:
Wooooow

A visitor from Germany posted Thu March 9, 2006:
Wow

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 24, 2005:
YEA!!! What a awesome picture of Fat Albert's JATO!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Wonderful! I love the JATO and the dark silhouette of the C-130 is incredible!

A visitor from Belgium posted Sun October 30, 2005:
Great shot, thanks for sharing

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 10, 2005:
Great Photo

A visitor from New Zealand posted Mon October 10, 2005:
I think this is one of those shots that many people can only dream of getting. The exhaust from the JATO rockets looking like sparks, the reflections on the skin of the sponsons and even between the flaps and the surface of the wing...Top Effort.

KInd Regards,

Cliff Burgess.

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 10, 2005:
Amazing lighting, my new background!

A visitor from Portugal posted Mon October 10, 2005:

FATTTTTTTTT ALBERRRT!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 9, 2005:
Great photo. Awesome takeoff and it's a well framed photo. I can feel the power even by just looking at it.

A visitor from Kuwait posted Sun October 9, 2005:
Does the pilot still need the flaps with a JATO thrust?

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Sun October 9, 2005:
Wonderfull...

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun October 9, 2005:
Awesome!

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 9, 2005:
Exelant use of camera filters

A visitor from Spain posted Sun October 9, 2005:
Both JATO (Jet Assisted Take off) and RATO (Rocket Assisted Take Off) are correct ways to say the same things although JATO is nowadays more usual than RATO.
Great picture.I wish I could see something like that nearby!!

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 9, 2005:
What an awesome shot!i can almost feel the power of that JATO

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 9, 2005:
Awesome shot! I was at the Oceana Airshow that same weekend, but missed this takeoff. I was too busy exploring the hanger. Awesome picture and it was an awesome weekend!

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 8, 2005:
Can anyone me if this is called a RATO or JATO?!?!...i would suspect the former.

A visitor from New Zealand posted Fri October 7, 2005:
Absolutely awesome!!!!

A visitor from Denmark posted Thu October 6, 2005:
That's quite a climbingrate...

A visitor from Germany posted Thu October 6, 2005:

A visitor from Portugal posted Mon October 3, 2005:
In such a low light condition, excellent capture for the photographer. Great moment.

A visitor from Kuwait posted Mon October 3, 2005:
Very nice pic, salute to all

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon October 3, 2005:
Great shot. It really is an eye-catcher, but what exactly caused the fireworks?

A visitor from Poland posted Mon October 3, 2005:
Superb!

A visitor from Canada posted Mon October 3, 2005:
A stunning picture! Just as impressive as the C130 take-off, itself

A visitor from Brazil posted Mon October 3, 2005:
To watch a take-off using ramjets is awesome (Blue Angels in FLL), but the contrast of dusk and the effects of a perfect shot deserve 5 star rating.

A visitor from Canada posted Mon October 3, 2005:
A wonderfully framed shot under difficult lighting. One of the best pictures I have seen in a long while.

A visitor from Canada posted Mon October 3, 2005:
Stunning shot of the Herc with the Jatto assisted t/o

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon October 3, 2005:
