About "C-130 MERCY MISSION"
Lockheed C-130 Hercules Military transport plane of the United States Air Force.
Tower control issues an instruction to the pilot to "Line up and wait" on the runway. The plane is about to depart from its base on a mercy mission to take emergency medical supplies to a ship in distress far out in the ocean. A massive storm front approaches and rain lashes the airstrip as the sun sets, causing a golden glow. The tower clears the plane for take off. The pilot opens the throttles and the propellers whip up a water spray as it lurches forward.
Power Plant Four Allison T56-A-15 turboprops;
4,300 horsepower, each engine. Length 97 feet, 9 inches (29.3 meters).
Height 38 feet, 3 inches (11.4 meters).

Don is an Artist with SouthAfricanArtists.com based in South Africa.
I am a multi-gifted artist and illustrator, Senior Professional Architectural Technologist, marketing consultant and photographer.
I work in oil, water colours, charcoal, pencil, pen and multi-media paintings, drawings and commercial illustrations.
I enjoy all types of subject matter ranging from wildlife, landscapes, seascapes, portraits - across the spectrum to architecture, contemporary art, aviation, ships, trains and still life.
My approach to colour, form, composition, subject matter:
As a designer and artist, I am inspired by all types of subject matter and am constantly experimenting with colours, form and subject matter. Wildlife & aviation however, are my first choices which I constantly return to.
My mission is to produce unconditional fine-art excellence which will leave a legacy that is an accurate record, inspires, brings joy and is a delight to the art owner.
My philosophy is to enjoy every facet of God’s creations and my own gift of creativity. I receive enormous satisfaction from mentoring others and donating my time and works to worthy causes which benefit humanity and the environment.
My aviation works are well researched and the aircraft and locations are acurate as possible so that they provide a legacy and historical record for others to appreciate.
All my works are available as prints, posters, postcards etc.
I matriculated in art at the PE Technical College and was privately tutored by Andre' Vancoillie. I have participated in exhibitions at the Getaway Show Cape Town, Port Elizabeth St Georges Gallery, De Oude Kraal Luxury Guest Lodge, Grahamstown Arts Festival, Queenstown, EPSAC Port Elizabeth and my works are permanently on display in the SAAF Museum Art Gallery in Forest Hill Port Elizabeth. saafmuseum org za
