A more recent design enters the second Battle of the Noses on AirSpace: it is this dolphin-like nose of the McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30CF c/n 46987 l/n 255 of the Royal Netherlands Air Force 334 squadron with tailnumber T-255, photographed at Eindhoven AB in The Netherlands (EHEH) on 7 September 2011. The first Battle of the noses ended on February 1 2012, with AirSpace user Flyvertosset as the winner with his favourite, the DC-3/C-47/Dakota. The second battle may feature some more recent designs, but the good old vintage lot should also participate of course. There may also be a Battle of the Tails coming up. More info about this DC-10: The Dutch Air Force bought the aircraft on 29 October 2004 and after refurbishment it was added to the two KDC-10s of the Dutch Air Force to increase the airlift capability. However, according to recent plans to cut the budget of the Dutch armed forces, it will soon be sold.

The Battle of the noses I ended on February 1. The battle of the Noses II seems to be raging with EnoAeroPics leading the pack.
The second Battle of the Noses also features more recent designs, but of course vintage aircraft will also be allowed to participate. A Battle of the Tails can be expected.
