Blimey, well that's something you don't see every day, a 40+ year old Falcon 'biz jet' freighter. Looking at the size of that cargo door looks like a useful bit of kit for adhoc freight, great catch and nice to see something out of the ordinary.

The name "Willow Run" really brings back the memories. In 1959 I was on my annual spotting pilgrimage around the airfields of the South East when I called into Blackbush, and parked on the apron was a USAF C54 Skymaster with the title "Willow Run" on a stripe across the fin, I think that I have a B&W picture taken by my 'Box Brownie' hidden away somewhere. Those were the days. Robin.

I think they use them for transporting car parts.
