Do you hav a picture of that freighter ??

Ik work at Schiphol ( Amsterdam Airport ) and somebody last weekend said
' look there goes a Bristol'.
I don't know what type or anything, but the guy said it was at least 30
years old.
I was on old 4 porp plane with a vage appearence of a hercules.
The one i saw is still in service as a freighter for 'Heavy Lift', an
air cargo company.
If you want me to, i can try and take a closer look this weekend. Just
tell me where to look to be make a possitive ID.

Good luck and let me know!
