  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to aviation.SE! Can you give us any more information for context, especially where and when you saw the aircraft? $\endgroup$ – Pondlife Nov 8 '18 at 3:42

    $\begingroup$ The two possibilities I know of are the C-130 and the A400M. I suspect the latter as shown in this linked photo. $\endgroup$ – Gerry Nov 8 '18 at 13:54
  • $\begingroup$ @Gerry Perhaps. I'm not claiming the plane is French. Also, the 3, French-like tricolor (blue, white, red) stripes were vertical on the rudder only, but perhaps these planes have various paint jobs. $\endgroup$ – Geremia Nov 8 '18 at 16:47

    $\begingroup$ @Geremia Well. Which one? At least the country would give a clue, if you don’t want to share actual location... but it would even be better knowing which airport it was! $\endgroup$ – Cpt Reynolds Nov 8 '18 at 17:58
