Good catch.

There's some nose art with text "Resilient" painted below cockpit windows. PAF aircraft are rarely seen with nose art.

Hope different PAF C-130s get different nose art.

thank you Haroon, here is what i have experienced from the last aviation photographic session of Islamabad

Experiencing my new DSLR Canon EOS 60D along with EF-S 55-250mm IS, i am not satisfied and really in need to upgrade the lens as well, i must consider 100-400mm L Series in an extreme short time to get the best out of my new pal 60D otherwise the outcome will remain unsatisfactory for long distance aviation photography :(

Getting off-topic from aviation but how much difference would it be between 75-300 and 100-400? Because latter one costs around 1400 euros, whereas former is just under 200 euros mark.

haroon, if you consider L series for both then 75-300mm will cost more than 100-400mm and if you consider an ordinary lens then these are lot way cheap than L series

Once you've tried the 100-400 IS L lens you will never go back. The best lens (for the budget) Canon have made. I had 7 years of use out of mine without an issue and sold it for £40 less than what I paid for it :)

Hi Raihans,

Wonderful shots!

Where are you taking these shots from? These take-off shots look amazing and I suppose you have a best place to capture these departing airliners.
