One of the stranger planes I have seen. Does look like it can hold a lot of whatever.

Wonder if they really stack stuff right up over the pilot's head like it appears? Strange looking plane, with almost no markings. Still in beta testing?

Definitely an unusual looking plane. Very nicely taken shots :cool:
