Snap captures golden moment of beach landing
A MASSIVE RAF aircraft has been spectacularly pictured landing on a Carmarthenshire beach.
The C-130 Hercules has been using Cefn Sidan at Pembrey for training purposes.
Images shared by Pembrey Airport show the enormous transport aircraft coming in to land on the beach with a stunning sunset as a backdrop.
A spokesman for Pembrey Airport said: “From time to time the RAF have training exercises here to train their pilots to land on the beach.
“They were pilots from RAF Brize Norton and they were doing it for about two hours in the evenings over two or three days.
“They probably carry out training exercises down here about five times a year.
“Sometimes they use two aircraft but this time it was just the one.”
