Some images take us way back. The photo above, which I grabbed from Wikipedia, flew me to my "brat" youth. The Lockheed C-130 Hercules has served the Canadian Armed Forces and Royal Canadian Air Force for decades. In my day, the "Herc" was painted in the livery illustrated above, which only help feed the pangs of nostalgia.
The route of CFB Lahr to Gatwick Airport, and back again, was my trip; my "flip".
