    It's a C-130. What looks like an extra pair of engines are actually the external fuel tanks.

    If it wasn't for the green tail I almost thought it was a US Navy C-130 with the old gloss white over gloss gray paint scheme.

    Default Takeoff?

    Just the opposite, Shadow off left wingtip shows A/C is on the ground and more N' likely heading for taxi way.

    It is on the ground and taxiing towards the East end of runway. May be just touched down ( not taking off ).

    If it is going for take off it will generally taxi on the centre line.

    The sun is almost overhead ( a little towards sout-east ) hence very small shadow is cast. Billbp has made a very good observation. Even the main airport building has a very small shadow.

    It has just taken off the ground because it is at the end of the runway.
