Photo: Inside the cockpit of the (special colored) Colombian Air Force C-130H

During Farnborough International Airshow 2012, we published the images of the cockpit of the U.S. Air Force C-130J on static display. Now, you can compare the digital cockpit of the “J” version with the one of the Colombian Air Force C-130H, operating with the Grupo de Transporte Aéreo 81 based at El Dorado, Bogotà.

Although it may appear somehow old-fashioned, I still consider it much interesting with all those panels and consoles filled with analogue instruments.
