    TAMIL TIGERS

    at first, I have to tell they NOT were/are a real country... (as for Abkhazia...)

    indeed, they had some Zlin-143's... but without markings;( i've found only wreck views in camo-schemes...)

    and this ;http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Sky_tigers.JPG Click image for larger version.

    Thanks Kervyn = i thought as much that there was no logo

    In my recent trip to the famous Waterstones in London - found a very nostalgic book - Big Book of Flight


    http://www.amazon.co.uk/product-reviews/0593070313/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_btm?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=bySubmissionDateDescending


    it had 4 pages on defunct roundels which was quite interesting - Perhaps Gerard will expand his excellent web cite and put more text into it

    Sierra Leone... (post 158 in Small A/F thread #16..)

    One more 'historic' A/F ???
    Sierra Leone ....
    thanks for your pics, Greg...
    their Puma seems to be a military one, BUT when was taken that picture ? (photo # 220109... in which site ??)

    I'm afraid the SLAF is now an HISTORIC one ; found in Wikipedia (last modified on 25 May 2013) :

    The Republic of Sierra Leone Air Force was merged with the other services to form the RSL Armed Forces from 2002. Sierra Leone has a very small air component with a limited offensive capability. The status of its equipment is unknown, but the aircraft are not operable

    to deduct from THE AFM poster ?? ??

    friendly, Etienne

    meanwhile..... see the post # 164 ! with thanks to Archangelski...!


    and post # 168 !!!!!

    Hi Etienne

    just heard that the new version of John Cochrane's book on Roundels of the world will be released as a single volume by Crecy instead of the split 2 volume planned

    with the Chad roundel the blue part is facing the fuselage, The Czech roundel, the blue is facing forward.

    I did a color corection on the pic and its realy yellow (The Herc in the background is white!), the blue facing the fuselage so it Chad alright

    it's an excellent idea, GERARD....!

    let's continue with..... 'SAO TOME & PRINCIPE" ;

    till now I remain convinced this roundel was never used ;

    &, nearly 10 years ago somebody else wrote (fm flagspot.net ) ;

    Unknown Air Force symbols

    According to [cos98], reports (without an image) that only recently small number of aircraft was obtained and «there are reports of those being marked with a roundel version of the national flag: red, yellow and green with two black stars». I quite familliar with [cos98]’s phrase «there are reports» so I will consider those “reports” with utmost caution. What I have learned from the Russian Aviation site is that the «small number of aircrafts» is extacly one An-32. My guess that it fly with civil markings and maybe national flag as fin flash, but until someone will be there and take a photo of it, we will still be in the dark.

    AFAIK the Defense Forces don't have any aircraft. I wonder if they even had some in the past. So, the roundel is interesting but probably never used.
    I vaguely remember an article which said that members of the defense forces used to fly with this airliner between the islands.
