    Chris, I found it on Facebook when searching for Libyan Migs. Accordig to my sources Saudi Freighters were operated by the airlines, but now it seems at least one went to the air force (Saudi AF roundel on the fuselage is clearly visible on the photo).

        Starsign. On the Saudi Bristol Freighter the picture is not good taken from a distance. It looks to me like the "roundel" could be the door the inside of the door in the open position. A picture of the civil aircraft the fin flash looks the same with a white area in front. Which is not on AF aircraft of the period.

          Good observation Chris. Most probably it is a civilian aircraft.

                          Man, those are some SWANK looking Hinds. If I ever build a 1/72 Hind, now I know what scheme it will be.

                            Yup.. You're right.

                            I doubt if any pics of Chadian MiG-29 taken at N'djamena AFB exist now.
                            Can someone post them if they're gone published in magazine?

                                          Zambian C-47 in March 1967, looks like AF-107. President Kaunda at the bottom of the steps in the second shot.

                                          From a Reuters clip

                                          At the end of the clip the camera pans around and we can see a pair of Herks, one on the right and the port wing of another on the extreme left of frame. Probably 9J-RBY and 9J-RBZ owned by the Government of Zambia and leased to Zambian Air Cargo. Both were written-off in a mutual collision at Ndola in 1969.

                                          But around what is the crowd clustering? Looks almost like a business jet.
