Remark Photographer
156170 / 25 (cn 382-4239) The EC-130Q was used to communicate with US Navy submarines while they remained submerged. To achieve this a 30,000ft antenna was spooled out behind the aircraft to transfer data with very low frequency (VLF) signals that could penetrate sea water. This example from VQ-4 is seen on approach to runway 11 at RAF Mildenhall; note the red cones used to draw out and stabilise the antennae.
