One Response to Alenia C27J Spartan

    Dear Sir,

    I loved this shot of the C-27 in flight, however there appears to be an enormous dust spot above the wing on the left of the photo. This does detract from the photo quite alot.

    Perhaps a “quick” edit would restore the photo to an excellent shot.
