Time for a Friday Fat Jet!

Courtesy of Alex's camera. (I've been remiss of late - partly because I didn't want to overdo the genre - but dammit, I like aircraft, and Fat Jets, and Alex does some fine work).

It IS a beauty. And I love aircraft too. That is why I don't mind the noise at my hotel in Khartoum, which is just about 200 meters on the side of the runway, well, perhaps 300 meters. So, in the evening I sit outside and watch planes land.

What surprises me with the "Big Fat Jets" is that Australia has them. And it seems, even many. But then I guess it is because we have wrong ideas about Australia by thinking that you people (besides playing rugby) are running around Ayers Rock, chasing kangaroos.

Not that many really Peter - 4 C-17s. But 2 or 3 C-17s can lift what a squadron of Hercs (C-130s) can.
C-130s we have 24 of, 12 ea C130H and C130J, plus a few other types like Caribous
