Code 5-NC , FIDAE ´98
[Canon EOS 400D].
A/C somewhat weathered and in original paint scheme, awaiting restoration at the the USAF Armament Museum, Eglin AFB, FL..
I wish it was a real taxing "Bear". But it won't fly any more, sitting in this museum to the rest of its days.
Just a fantastic plane...
