Remark Photographer
5007 (cn D7) "Germany Air Force 189" ready for departure inbound St. John's, Newfoundland. I love these old C-160's, and the scarface of this one makes you realise how old it really is! [Canon 350D + 100-400L IS USM]

Nice closeup, and the effects of the "ice" makes the appearance of the aircraft very peculiar. ..As a comment to an earlier remark: Yes, aluminium corrodes, but in a different way than steel. It oxidizes and is degraded into aluminium oxide (powder). This is not an uncommon phenomenom in commercial airliners, and is usually discovered/repaired during periodical checks.

And to think the French AF say their C-160s are knackered! ;-)

A visitor from Portugal posted Fri September 14, 2012:
Interesting point of view, but Azores is kinda warm during winter. It never drops below 50F

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 14, 2012:
I don't think there is anything wrong with the paint,looks like ice to me,remember it is January 21.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed September 12, 2012:
It is good that aluminum doesn`t corrode

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue September 11, 2012:
The thumbnail makes it look like fire damage! Nice detail. Can even read some of the door decals.

Very nice one Leandro! Congrats from Madeira Island. Rui Alves :)

If the Trall of the GAF would be an airliner, no passenger would fly with them with this "nice" painting!
