More on the USAF C37A

I have just received another picture of the United States Air Force C37A [aka, military version of the Gulfstream V] from a "spotter in training" [thanks Ging!] today :-). This picture was taken as the aircraft vacated runway 16 at Whiskey 2.

I didn't think the Whiskey taxiways were angled for "fast" exits - but I see he still has his thrust reversers deployed!

They are not angled. What is interesting is that earlier pictures on the runway, the reversers were not deployed...

I am wondering if the aircraft had actually exited later on the runway and crossed at 5 to W2 rather than directly at W2. I dunno though.

futher to Anonymous's comment on the other post 01-0065 was in CHC yesterday afternoon along with 01-0029 which arrived from SYD. So keep an eye out Rodney, and ZK-ARJ cause they both may be in Wellington again later in the week.
