Egyptian air force markings.

Yeah. I for some reason see Egyptian Air Force C-130s that come by every couple of months. I still have not figured out exactly why, but I still enjoy an airplane that you do not get to see every day.

There used to be a facility at KHSA that was upgrading C-130s to glass cockpits, including many Egyptian Air Force aircraft. Perhaps these are passing through to there.

That would make a lot of sense. I did not really think that this is related to anything diplomatic.

David Sims... thanks for sharing that info... which does explain why another Egyptian Air Force C-130, SU-BAP, happened to be at KHSA when I snapped this photo of it in circa 2004...

The weird thing about this is that I only see Egyptian Air Force C-130s come through here, and no other foreign military planes.
