Hello Arie,
Yes looks to be at Tampere today
If you check website Ads b nl then Info tab, select a/c type C130 then look for NZ- range serials (long list for Herks)
Once you see the serial listed (in blue) select that. When that page loads click the black map pin on right hand side which then displays route map
Red = start / green = finish position
I hope that helps you plan your trip.
At Brize it tends to park on the South side of the airfield near water treatment works and easily visible from Rwy 25 Western approach end
Have a safe trip and good luck with your tour
All the best,
Paul

Hi Arie
Evergreen 44 is nearly right. The aircraft has been parked with the RAF C130s which are at the 07 end of the runway. Follow the directions to Alvescot and carry on to Black Bourton. There are signs to a pub called the Vines. Follow these which will take you to a road that leads to a crash gate. Just before the end is a footpath on the left which you can drive down. Drive down as far as you can and you will be opposite the parking bay of the NZ C130. Easy to photograph with sun from mid to late afternoon.
Hope this helps you.

Regards
John

Landed around 18.30. It is now parked in the South West corner of the airfield just north of the sewer plant. Arie, hopefully you will be able to get there in time and will be able to see it, follow paulk's (John's) instructions above.
