"WOW, that plane is HUGE!!" - comments like this were heard all over town this weekend as a C-130 Hercules (A four engine military aircraft) was spotted flying extremely low off the coast of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. The aircraft was flying several dozen feet of the ground and had no identification marks.

Some say that the C-130 aircraft was also seen at the International Airport and flying by South Water Caye. The C-130 Hercules was originally designed as a troop, medical evacuation and cargo transport aircraft. Its original primary customer for over 50 years has been The United States Air Force.

The C-130 Hercules definetely caught the attention of many residents as if flew by at a low altitude just above our heads. Much thanks to Mr. Elbert Greer for having captured the photo we have re-posted and to Jo3design for the video he captured of the aircraft flying by the coast of San Pedro.

    So the Mexican;s are just allowed to fly in Belize Airspace? That was way to low to be considered safe as well

    yah i remember that kind of startled me. it passed by lower than the palm tree in front of my office. if i didnt know any better about how plane engines sound i would have thought that this plane was ditching in the sea.. it was pretty close to land. and not too high off the ground either! crazy! does anyone know what  its purpose for flying so close and here i Belize was?

    I asked a British friend if he knew why they were flying so low, and he said that the Military boys were saying 'Good-Bye' to all of us as we know the British Military were 'down sized' here in Belize.   And he is involved with the British Military so I do believe his explanation.  Thank you for they fly over boys and good bye to you also.  I believe, you will be missed!
