[Photo] Royal Air Force of Oman C-130 landing at Pisa

Last month we published a stunning image showing a Hellenic Air Force C-130 flying with another plane of the same type, wearing the typical camouflaged color scheme still used by many Greek planes.

Even if most combat planes wear monochrome light grey paint jobs, camouflage color schemes, quite important for survival in certain scenarios, both in the air and on the ground, are still applied to aircraft flying with some quite exotic air forces.

Among them, the Royal Air Force of Oman.
