      Laos

      Today, I was able to discover so-called true rareties in the fb, then posted a few very rare images of LPLAAF IL-103 here for the first time.

      Twenty-one Il-103 reportedly ordered in 2002, but only three delivered in July 2004. No reports of subsequent deliveries. Currently operated by the LPLAAF for liaison/light transport.

            Got access to a wonderful guy having many old archives full of photos from deployment of Czechoslovak AF instructors in the 70s and 80s.
            He was kind enough to provide them for scans.. Stay tuned for Libya, Afghanistan, Syria, Ghana and Iraq

                [QUOTE=MSphere;2265386]Ghanian L-29 Delfin in their original camo

                Excellent pics !! MSphere..

                Got any pics of L-39 Albatross in North Korean marking?

                They also have been operating around 12 L-39s ever since late 80.

                Most likely transferred from Ex-Soviet VVS stocks.

                You gotta need to go about asking him if he has had any pics of North Korean L-39 Albatross in his archive.

                It can be corroborated, since I even went far as to witness a small pic of the model jet plane on stand, which was featuring a L-39 Albatross with arrowy stripe on the side of fuselage put up for sale at the North Korean state-run website about 10 years ago.

                  Hmm, he never was in North Korea, as far as I know. Haven't seen nay NoKo pics in his collection.
                  Sorry

                  Got a pic of that model kit?

                    Not quite.

                    Three delivered in July 2004: 0401, 0402, 0403
                    One delivered in March 2007: 0512

                    Nice photos!

                        Ghana back in the early 80s - mishap of the G901 (allegedly after the first solo flight by a Ghanian pilot) - note delivery camo

                          more Ghana in the early 80s - Albatros, Bulldog, Islander, Delfins and Skyvan. Pics of GAF L-39ZA in the ex-Libyan delivery camo are extremely rare

                                    MSphere, many thanks for those incredible pictures. For me, those Ghanian L-39s in Libyan cammo are candidates for pictures of the year!

                                    Cy24driver, your photos of the Laotian Air Force aircraft are awesome. Do you happen to have a top- or bottom-view of a Laotian MiG-21? I still wonder if they had the national flags (or anything) applied on the wings.

                                    And last but not least, thank you Wes for that Lesotho Jet Ranger. I've never seen this type in LDF service. Awesome.

                                      Thanks for your kind words.. I feel that the commitment of some members towards this thread has gotten beyond my wildest dreams.. We have really seen some incredible pictures in recent times and I feel the need to pay at least something back, in return, by posting photos which you'll never find anywhere on the web..

                                          Not that I have of.. I'm not interested in collecting walk-around pics of fighter jets or helicopters.
                                          Hopefully, Get back to this thread with your wonderful pics!!

                                          MSphere

                                          I didn't feel any need to save it at that moment, as it was way too small like thumnail or something like that.

                                          Could barely make it out the entire view after enlarging it.

                                          Wes

                                          It was a very good picture of Lesotho Defense Force's Jet Ranger.

                                          Many thanks for sharing it with us!!
