Evergreen's website makes the liveries of the cargo version and the tanker almost indentical. I guess it is pretty hard to mistake the cargo version for the tanker. Nice pic by the way.
It's definately one for the private collection
The lighting was crappy, it was cloudy and 7am, but you never know when the EIA birds are going to leave, so I snagged the pic while I could. Sure enough it was gone when I got off work. That tail is recent since all the pics here show the traditional livery. That tail is actually what made me go see what the heck was visiting! I was driving the south side of the field and noticed the red tail on what I could swear was an EIA body and had to drive around to the closer side to see what it was. Being around MHR
is fun if you like the cargo birds. We get the normal DHL/ABX
and UPS stuff, then the odd Evergreen, Atlas, Polar or Kalitta 747s staging for Travis. Got a couple of surprises earlier this year when Gemini brought us a couple of DC10s on their way to Travis. Now if I could just catch them on their way in or out, that would be awesome
