Forum rules
ImageThis is the forum to share your recent aviation photos with the rest of the community, being photos not older than six months at the moment of topic opening. Theme-based topics, not about recent events, should go into the sub-forum.
Although we will not screen beforehand, we reserve the right to delete any images, especially if clearly unsharp or otherwise low in quality. For more information on how to upload you images, check this post.
In topic titles, please use airfield names in stead of just codes, and be clear about what kind of photos your viewers can expect (e.g. CIV/MIL, location etc.).

Finally, bring any photo criticism understandable and to the point, not cynical or offensive! Simultaneously, do not feel offended by criticism per se, but simply explain your motives, taste et cetera, or ignore if you wish so.

Earlier this afternoon, 5H-TGF arrived at Woensdrecht from Malta where it made a nightstop. Another nice aircraft for Fokker Technics!

Your photo title says "Government of Tanzania", which was the case two years ago.
Now it belongs to Air Tanzania, so 100% civil.

It's still owned by the government of Tanzania, but was leased by Air Tanzania two years ago due to payment issues.

Edit: forgot to mention that the aircraft is already handed back to the government.

OK... for me it doesn't work that way....

When the Austrian Air Force leased Swiss F-5s (wearing Austrian mks.) I noted them as Austrian AF, not as Swiss AF.

But I don't blame you, I can imagine it is a rare bird for the civvie guys.

always this annoying discussion CIV vs MIL

Aircraft was and still is owned by TGF / Tanzanian Government Flight. Some people mark it as CIV and some as MIL..

Anyway, a very nice hybrid without the "Air" titles and giraffe on the tail :)

Why is that annoying? Can be very entertaining, especially when driving long distances during spotter trips :-)

For me it is civil by the way, now and in the past when serving the government. But that is only relevant for myself I guess ;-)

Either way it is a rare and exotic bird, very nice no doubt for the civil (and government) spotters.
