Just noticed this type is called Skytrain II by the US Marines/Military. Very nice, I think, as it must refer to that older Skytrain, the C-47 AKA Dakota, in civil life of course the DC-3. So this aircraft is/was seen as a full bred workhorse, too, and stands in a line of great aircraft. I wonder how much longer it will be in service. And yes, the lighting and timing in this shot are of exceptional quality!
