Even small planes are hard to store due to their size, and if you are forced to leave such a craft out in the open for a while, it is necessary to set up a few precautions.

5. An artistic raincoat will make you stand out

12. Police patrols in Sweden are on another level
Patrol vehicles in Sweden are almost unrecognizable sometimes, because they are disguised as regular vehicles, and the roof lights are inserted into luggage roof boxes, which is a brilliant idea. They must be pretty effective with that stealth appearance.
