        many thanks, MSphere (& Gerard), for THE view ; the RDC marking is 'well' visible on the fuselage !!

        friendly,

          Continuing my 'ww'-C-130 collection.......

          i just had a look to the most recent wikipedia's POV ; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockhee...ules#Operators

          but it's most probably not 100% correct ; so e.g. I don't agree for LIBERIA...
          ........ OK for Afghanistan (!) & Ethiopia(*) ; both countries got recently (more) recent ones !
          (*) I cannot find any views with their national roundel !!

          ... about Angola :
          Angolan Air Force
          Received 6 C-130K, 3 L-100-20, and 2 L-100-30 aircraft. None in flying condition now.
          what are the 'former' countries (in green) on the map (Asia & Africa) ?


          friendly,

                          MSphere ; The Vietnamese ones are not visible ! (*)
                          ; no problems for Afghanistan (*)

                                As far as the Angolan C-130 is concerned, remember that the lines between military, civilian, and government can sometimes be rather blurred!
