Colombian military aircraft

Colombian military aircraft by TCA

At Third Coast Aviation (‘TCA‘) headquarters at Ellington Field in Houston, Texas, you never know who will be neighbors.  Tuesday we had some interesting aircraft that parked not more than 50 feet from our desks at our Part 61 flight training school – the Colombian Air Force!  There actually was a great big hub-bub or gaggle of photographers that showed up as this was a pretty cool grouping.  The Colombian military aircraft are parked there today if you want to come out and take a look…

There was also a Colombian 767 which disgorged its contents of support material:

Thanks goes to Brad Tisdel for sharing photographs that he took around Ellington Field.  Take a look at his portfolio.  These Colombian military aircraft look beautiful on the tarmac!
