๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช Special Transall Luftwaffe

The German Air Force unveiled a special paint scheme for one of its C-160 Transall transport aircraft to commemorate the end of service for this type of aircraft, which entered service back in 1968.

Developed jointly by France and Germany for their air forces in the 1960s, the C-160 Transall served 53 years in the German Air Force. These aircraft are currently being decommissioned and replaced with the Airbus A400M.

Transall with hull number "50 + 40" from the 63rd Luftwaffe Transport Squadron (Lufttransportgeschwader 63 (LTG 63)) received a special livery, which shows the squadron mascot - a bumblebee, the words "Goodbye Tour" [Farewell tour - approx.] And Lufttransportgeschwader 63, and its wings are painted in the colors of the German and French flags. This S-160 will make its last flight at the end of the year.
