As I understand it, in 2016 one landed in Kuwait because it had a problem and was forced to land, while its wingmate and the others kept going even further to their secret base.

I give you four USAF MC130s from RAF Mildenhall flying through the Mach Loop at low level.

They went around four times so each probably took a turn in the lead.

Pretty spectacular stuff and, as the esteemed Gravdigr would say, embiggen!

I've been in C130s flying NOE. If you're not strapped in, you can suddenly find yourself a foot off the floor. Even when strapped in, air sickness can be a problem as a passenger in the rear. In airborne operations, they fly NOE; then, pop up to jump altitude to put the paratroopers out and dive back down to continue NOE. On one operation, the scheduled jumpmaster (my CO) started puking his guts out and I had to take over as jumpmaster for him shortly before the drop.

I'm well aware of allied gliders used by the good guys in the big one, WW II, my Dad came home with glider wings. But it never dawned on me they were like milk bottles, they wanted them back to refill 'em. So they sent planes out to fetch them home but it wasn't easy since they didn't land at airports, but any treeless spot near their target. Embiggen...

Never had any idea we retrieved them.
Looks like an interesting challenge and one that beat the heck out the infantry.
Have you found a trove of WWII vids?

Do you think I would hold out on you, my oldest and dearest friends... if it didn't involve money or sex?
No, just find them in my travels.
