[UPDATED] Photo of an Indonesian AF C-130 covered in volcanic ash

This post-apocalyptic photo, by a photographer who wishes to remain anonymous, shows a Tentera Nasional Indonesia - Angkatan Udara (Indonesian Air Force) Lockheed C-130H-30 Hercules transport (serial A-1316) covered in volcanic ash from the eruption of Mt Kelud, in Java. Taken at Adi Sucipto Airport near Yogyakarta, the airport is one of several airports closed due to the volcanic activity. The TNI-AU's bases of Iswahyudi & Abdul Rahman Saleh were, as of yesterday, also still closed for similar reasons.

UPDATE: C-130H-30 A-1316 is now back flying, and Adi Sucipto Airport has also re-opened.

Thanks for Taz Imansyah (@KaitouTaz) for the heads up
