Photo Comment

Not just any Transall, rather one of the first to be fitted with the EADS countermeasures suite for operations in Afghanistan and elsewhere. The most obvious visual difference on the outside is the rear part of the undercarriage fairing incorporating the chaff/flare launcher. Photographed as part of the static display at RIAT 2009.
