    Etienne, note the roundel on the fuselage of the Nicaraguan T-6. They did use a blue-yellow-red roundel on the fuselage (see the P-51 profile), but the colors on the T-6 are reversed. Could this be an unusual variant, or just an effect of the black/white photo? Not sure, but looks like triangle roundels on the underside of the wing. I will check with some contacts about this one. It looks very odd to me. Thanks for posting it!

    Alex, note that the fuselage insignia on the A-20 looks just like that of Etienne's AT-6. I just received confirmation from an impeccable source that the color reversal for the middle and inner portions is indeed due to the effects of monochromatic black/white film. The true colors are, from the center, blue-yellow-red. And while this fuselage insignia was in use, the standard triangle roundels were used on the wings.

    Many thanks to you too Etienne, especially for the L-39 in Angolan colours.
    PS : the rest of the site is also of interest. Many rare pictures (Il-76, L-39 without camouflage near Su-27UB, ...) but also strange things (J-10 in Angolan colours is particularly a troubling view of imagination)

    great site Etienne. So we can be sure that the star in the roundel is history.

    In the second picture : this crew member has not really the "look" of a Libyan citizen.

    Togo apparently acquired at least one Mi-8/Mi-17 helicopter. The photograph below is from the military parade in the capital of Lomé, 2013.

    from which (small ?) country are these Saab MFI-15's ??? ;http://crimso.msk.ru/Images6/AE/AE03-2/2-1.jpg


    friendly, Etienne

    I think I've found the answer ;
    MFI-15 SE-FIZ - med tillverkningsnummer 15.004 - flög första gången 1973-03-27 och såldes till Sierra Leone tillsammans med systerkärran SE-FIY (15.003).

    SE-FIY blev skrot efter en kollison med en gam 1976, men FIZ levde vidare, först som GST-444 och omreggades därefter under våren 1975 till GS-P7.
    SIERRA LEONE ??
