Amazing C-130 photo shows aircraft camouflage still rocks
Anyway, regardless the reasons for using an overall monochrome light grey paint job, aircraft sporting colorful liveries remain particularly cool and much appreciated by aircraft enthusiasts and photographers.
The following image shows a C-130 belonging to the 356 MTM (Tactical Transport Squadron) of the Hellenic Air Force flying with another plane of the same type, wearing the typical camouflaged color scheme still used by many Greek planes.

Although the aircraft can’t mask themselves against the blue sea in the background (a light grey color scheme would make them only slightly less visible), the exotic livery makes them particularly photogenic.
