C 130 Fat Albert Cruise altitude?

The Fat Albert seems to cruise much faster at just over 10,000 feet. I read online the cruise level is FL 28, but I gain almost 100 kts when I’m at a lower altitude?

What are you using to compare the data (numbers)? Indicated Air Speed or Ground Speed?

The higher you are, the higher is your ground speed and slower your air speed.
Don’t get fooled by that!

I definitely got fooled by the ground speed vs airspeed. :-) Thanks.
