Germany: Lockheed Martin WC-130

Ever wondered how the US Air Force cleans its planes? Here’s one way: They use a giant shower on a runway — or a plane wash if you must. Here you can see it cleaning the salt accumulated on a Lockheed Martin WC-130 Hercules after flying through storms over the Gulf of Mexico. The Lockheed WC-130 Hurricane Hunter is a high-wing, medium-range aircraft used in weather reconnaissance missions. The aircraft is a modified version of the C-130 transport configured with palletized weather instrumentation for penetration of tropical disturbances and storms, hurricanes and winter storms to obtain data on movement, size and intensity.
