Interesting info on that C-27 being part of the DOS AirWing.  Wonder if they were going to modify them into spray aircraft like the OV-10s.

Ever-so-slightly different angle than the one James posted in the C-130 thread.  At first I thought this was one of the local CSAR birds, then I saw it was much lighter and thought it might be a white Coast Guard one.  So I'm thinking "AWESOME!," because when do we ever see USCG Herks in Arizona?  Then as it got closer and I saw it was totally bare-metal, I got even more excited, because when do we ever see bare-metal C-130s anywhere?  Blah blah blah, here's the darned photo:

Here's my contribution on the naked C-130.  As you can see, she was already starting to pass when I finally got my camera/lens working properly.  I guess that gives my shot a different perspective than the others.

It was cool to see this, you don't see bare-metal C-130s very often.

Wow - had a great day in Tucson again, shooting with Ned, James & Joe.  We got to enjoy quite the A-10 festival, with a Compass Call thrown in for a cake topper.

Wow, nice catch there Ned. Interesting that it still has the N-number instead of a typical U-28 serial like most. They come in all sorts of paint schemes from wild to o.d. grey and lumpy-bumpy. Well-done!
