Still can't figure out this plane. It clearly looks like it's ID is N9092U, but that doesn't match this. It's also not N90920, N9D92U, N9092D or any variation of that I can find.

SpiderX22 pictureCC-130J [815 AS]
Ahh okay. Thanks for the clarification :)

I always have to guess a bit and look at google image searches for identifications, and the only difference between the WC-130J and C-130J I saw was the fuel tanks between engines, and the right wing here looks like it has something between the engines (so 3 things on that wing). But, I'm nowhere near an expert so it's good somebody double checked.

SpiderX22 pictureWWII Japanese gun
One of the two Japanese shore batteries on Tarawa which mounted Japanese Type-41 200mm guns built in England in 1908. During the US assault of Tarawa in November 1943, this gun mount briefly engaged American Destroyers and Battleships closing in on the island before it was knocked out by fire from the USS New Mexico (BB-40), which scored a direct hit on the guns barrel with a 14-inch shell.

Today the gun and its support base are intact and still bear the damage inflicted on them...

That's not a tiller-ladder firetruck.

"A tiller ladder, also known as a tractor-drawn aerial or hook-and-ladder truck, is a specialised turntable ladder mounted on a semi-trailer truck. It has two drivers, with separate steering wheels for front and rear wheels. This truck is primarily used in the United States, especially in cities—like San Francisco and Washington, DC—where narrow streets cannot be entered by longer, rigid-bodied trucks."
