The 64th AGRS flew a new paint scheme yesterday, with 86-0269 being the first to get the new "blizzard" scheme, losing it's brown paint and going to this one

Nice photo takes for sharing that EOR. Don't mean to be ungrateful, but I gotta echo Boman could you please release a download option of that photo (even if it isn't the high resolution picture). Would watermarking the photo help? See http://www.visualwatermark.com/ for one example, although a quick Google search, or digging around CNET.com could yield better results.... :shrug:
Just an idea, again thanks for sharing that photo it's much appreciated! One last question what type of zoom lenses and camera did you use?

It looks interesting! Quick question: is that some sort of ECM pod in the centerline station? I don't recall seeing that ECM pod anywhere.
