New CARS Entry: NSF C-130 Spotted At KARR 

 I think this CARS (Cool Aircraft Ramp Spotters) feature has some real potential, but it ain’t going anywhere if you fine folks don’t send cool airplane pictures to me.  Please take a quick pic of the next really cool airplane you see sitting on the ramp (or hangar) and send it in… like William Hamrick did with this recent pic of a C-130 at KARR, the Aurora, Illinois airport.

  This Hercules with the snowflake painted on the tail is operated by the National Science Foundation and is used to do all sorts of atmospheric research.  William says it was there doing some demonstrations for students at Northern Illinois University.

 I found it extra interesting because I went to high school in Aurora, Illinois and even did a little flying out of this airport way back in the day, tho most of my flying in those days was out farther west at Hinckley where the skydiving and sailplanes were.

 Anyway, thanx William for sending the pic in.

 And as a reminder, here’s the info on CARS submissions:

 Fresh pix please, within the last month

 Gotta be Cool!  Rare aircraft, amazing paint, unique, odd or otherwise noteworthy

 Prefer jpg file, in sharp focus and at least 600 pixels wide

 Looking for everyday airport pix, NOT airshow/fly-in pix

 Send pix, questions or comments to
