Modern military?

Postby redbearing on Sat 24 Sep 2011, 4:58 pm

Following the USAF C17 and the Ecuadorian mil 727 the other day yet another mil 727 arrived late this morning, could not wait for its departure as after twenty minutes it was still looking for the FEDEX ramp, and I needed to leg it. Thought this something out of the ordinary.

cheers

I might give an internal organ to catch that beastie. Superbly captured!

Very smart,searching around there are some shots on Jetphotos showing it both white and grey and the grey is much better.Would love to see that over here although the most likely in UK is a C-130 or a presedential jet,

Great catch Rob, glad to see that you are not wasting you time just sitting by the sea, drinking Bourbon, and watching half naked ladies walk by :lol:

Could not believe my luck the old timer was about depart this morning, but they changed runways and to get down the other end is about 15 minutes, so decided to stay where I was to get some departing shots, no good as it took over 8000 feet to V1 so all the shots were in heat haze, sorry only this one. The sound was superlative!
