Pretty cool to see a German Luftwaffe plane with a giant US flag on it.

Anyone know what the story is behind the markings on this bird?

This special paintwork is to celebrate the laying exercise "Air Defender 23" in Germany in June this year.

What's up with the right engine so low and with wheel set poking out?

Meanwhile in the USAF, our AMC aircraft will be rid of all unnecessary markings as back in the MAC days when I first joined. No unit designation on the nose, no base designation on the tail. Any type of nose art on the aircraft to make it unique is a no go. Okay, it saves money, and might actually shave a few pounds off to get a higher allowable cabin load weight. Whoever the ass kisser was who came up with this idea also said it lt will make our aircraft look more professional and conform to strict military guidelines. Thanks for robbing us of our unit pride and morale, while my NATO counterparts can show off.

If Southwest was to buy any Airbus and move cargo, this would be it, lol. It really looks cool, though.

C-130 wannabe!

Well Tom that's actually the far left engine and the nose wheel, but then I'm viewing this on a computer not a cell phone. The wings are stressed to droop when they're relatively unloaded and the starboard wing looking high is just a combination of camera position & swept wing front edge. I like how they stopped the engines for a better picture.

Hello Tom, since you refer to the A400M as "C-130 wannebe", I recommend you this website: https://aerocorner.com/comparison/c130-vs-a400m/ Then you will see the difference between the two aircraft and find that the A400m is superior to the C-130 in everything. The C-130 is a very good tactical transport in the "20 ton class" but no comparison to the A400M.

Larry Toler, I am sure there was some son-a-bitch that was on their knees suggesting those blank, lifeless looking aircraft are a positive military look! How stupid? Give those first termers something to be proud of!!!

Hey Larry,
if Washington gets it's way pretty soon they will mandate sporting Dillan nose art and Bud light as well as LA Dodger's Logos well on the tail, to support the very squeaky wheel of less than 5 percent of America
