Does the idiot who posted this really thing the German Air Force would have an aircraft registered in the United States? Really??!!
Other than that, this is a nice shot of one German and one French 400M visiting Canada.

Paul, you've been commenting on here for long enough to know that the error has nothing to do with the poster.

How unique. C17 with turboprops. :)

And, what idiot calls the Italian flag French?
Andrea Gentilini
Bill, that's a French Flag. I'm Italian, and our flag is green-white-red, the blue-white-red is French. Most of all, the Italian Air Force has C130s, and not a single A400 !!

@Andrea: that was a pure case of the Pot calling the Kettle Black wasn't it; LOL.
Glad to see you speak up.
It's not worth all this agrivation guys .... It's just 2 Airbus aircraft

It is a good looking aircraft and it looks about the size of the C-17. While the C-130 is a much smaller aircraft it is without a doubt the most versatile airlift aircraft ever built. The C-130 was designed to be a short field high performance airlift aircraft and there is none better. I flew in a C-130 in southeast Asia equipped and manned as a Tactical Air Controller Aircraft and flew over the Ho Chi Minh Trail in Laos. The mission were 12 hours long and we controlled tactical air strikes on the Ho Chi Minh trail. They do everything from airlift to gunships to hauling paratroopers to flying intelligence gathering mission to flying through hurricanes collecting weather information and the list of others things it does is long........ Love the C-130.

On second thought, the A-400M is not nearly a big as the C-17.

Beautiful aircraft
Personally, apart from giving a good display at fairford when it could I am not really impressed with this aircraft. RAF Brize Norton is 30 mile from me but you can here these aircraft approaching a long way off. By some quirk I discover that it is mandatory still for an Airbus Engineer to fly on UK aircraft? Another logistical nightmare is that engines No 1&2 rotate in the opposite direction to 3 & 4!! To also rub salt in the wound the UK Govt has decided to keep these and remove all the C130s..
