Aeroplane Formation Near Mt Fuji Just Needs Godzilla

Check out this formation of eight US Air Force C-130 Hercules cargo aircraft flying in formation near Mt Fuji in Japan. It’s so beautiful that it looks like an illustration or a frame from a lost Akira Kurosawa modern war film.

The C-130s belong to the 36th Airlift Squadron Alaska Air National Guard and Tennessee Air National Guard. You can see them below, taxiing out after a training session at Yokota Air Base on June 5, 2012. [Flickr]
