Glass cockpit of Lockheed C-130H Hercules c/n 382-4988 with tailnumber G-988 of the Royal Netherlands Air Force at Eindhoven air base in The Netherlands (EHEH) on 7 September 2011. G-988 is one of two ex-US Navy C-130s that were refurbished and upgraded with new avionics by Marshall Aerospace in the UK. The main new feature is the glass cockpit. The aircraft was last flown by the US Navy in 1991 and made its first flight after the upgrade in July 2010. Note the small tiller wheel with knob for the nosewheel steering left of the captain's seat. Compare this image with the image of the conventional cockpit of an USAF Hercules (see link below).
