"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]

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

The thumbnail makes it look like fire damage! Nice detail. Can even read some of the door decals.

It is good that aluminum doesn`t corrode

I don't think there is anything wrong with the paint,looks like ice to me,remember it is January 21.

Interesting point of view, but Azores is kinda warm during winter. It never drops below 50F

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

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.
