C-130's at airshows like to show the crowd different things from time to time. Here, the aircraft is dropping some supplies out of the back, attached to a parachute which is just starting to open. The bulbous nose probably contains extra radar equipment.
This variant is an MC-130H Combat Talon II. It is used to deliver troops and supplies for covert operations.
