  7. Hello Metalbasher, in fact what is strange are the red and white bands on the rudder. Only this aircraft has worn this kind of markings.I think without being sure, that this marking is commemorative recalling the creation of this unit during the Second World War, and who was affected in the Pacific?
  8. Hello everyone, I would have liked to have explanations about these strange markings on the tail of this plane. Thanks for your help. Laurent.
  9. Hi Kevin, thank you for your quick response. Indeed the number of rivets is different, this is very explicit. So Kevin, the probability that it's a part of Lockheed C130 is by how much in percentage? Thank you. Laurent
