(Not a) Bomber in Winter

[Update: I was mistaken that this plane is a bomber. I have been informed by a couple of sources that this is a Hercules cargo plane. It lives at the nearby Trenton Canadian Forces Base and makes the trip to the Peterborough Air Port on a semi-regular basis for training.]

I turned around and behind me I could see a plane approaching.image of bomber flying through a winter landscapeThis was not the plane I expected to see.

I imagine it must have been mighty cold up in that plane…
