Kawasaki C-1

The C-1 medium-sized troop and freight transport was designed to meet a JASDF requirement for a replacement for its former fleet of Curtiss C-46s. The first flying prototype took off for the first time on 12 November 1970 and the first production aircraft was delivered in December 1974. By 1981 31 production C-1s had been delivered, including several long-range aircraft with an additional 4,732 litre wing centre-section fuel tank.

My wife and I have been together for ten years and have a little boy. Three weeks ago my whole world imploded. She is 35, has a successful business and works out of town for weeks at a time. I work full time and keep things going on. She has been cheating on me with her clients and a lot of it going as far back as last year, maybe beyond that. Thank God I found Dylan.

Recommended by my best friend for spying on her and extracting all the info i needed from her phone (Whatsapp, Facebook, Text messages, Viber, Snapchat, Instagram, iCloud including her call logs, deleted messages and so on) to confirm she was cheating on me. So far this hacker is the best, his works are discreet, secured and perfect without trace. You can contact him to catch your cheating partner. Tell him Anthony Brian referred you because he can be picky at times.

It is a shame that Japanese law forbids export of military equipment as there were some overseas interest in this aircraft.

Maybe they can make a civil variant, like the C-130 and L100. There would be a market for cargo carrying.

I see this plane flying regularly but at airshows they demonstrate amazing maneuvrability for such a large plane. It is a shame that Japanese law forbids export of military equipment as there were some overseas interest in this aircraft.

Kawasaki has now completed its replacement, which is a much larger plane with similar layout.

Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
