Keen spotters captured a first for Boscombe Down as three Republic of South Korea Hercules aircrafts landed last night, June 7.

The Lockheed C-130s flew into Amesbury's Royal Air Force base at 6.30pm to deliver equipment for the Korean aerobatic team, Black Eagles, who will be performing at three UK air shows this summer.

Spotters caught wind of the landing thanks to a Twitter post from aviation tracking page SkyScanWorld.

The C-130 Hercules entered service with the U.S in 1956 and is the longest continuously produced military aircraft.

Republic of Korea's Black Eagles will take to the skies in July at Southport Air Show, the Royal International Air Tattoo and the Farnborough Airshow.
