It was towed out of the left side (as viewed) of the hangar and I didn't look at it immediately, stupidly thinking it would stay out. A couple of minutes later I saw it being pushed back into the right side of the...

Target tow plane, will be flying a local mission, looks to be hired by the Romanian AF.
