Look at the size of those flaps! Beautiful sight all polished up. I do not know the skin material, but if Alclad they will have to be careful to not polish away the cladding layer, as happened to one of 42 squadrons VIP Daks.
What some people don't know is that they don't know enough to know that they don't know anything

Interested to hear more Ando, so is this the military designation of the type?
On the subject of military and we may as well go for a Lockheed again, RAAF C130J came out today for training, touch and goes.
The side on view really gives you a look at the stretched fuselage, will be interesting to see how they compare to the new J models the RNZAF are getting soonish. Even better if they landed one out here.
Here's the underside of a RNZAF H...........
............compared to a RAAF J..

That "onesie" cover is a product of Barsal Aircraft Covers based at Te Kowhai airfield. They have patterns for just about every common light aircraft type in New Zealand. They also custom make them if you have a unique machine that needs a cover. Sorry for the small advertisement but the owners are friends of mine and they do quality work.
