    That Zaire C-160 photo is of French aircraft F11. It was either loaned for a short while, or painted in those marks for some other reason.

      I doubt it was temporary as it is seen carrying Zairose registration 9-TTCE (today it would be 9T-TCE)..

        The Zairean Frelon was subsequently ( quietly ) bought by the SAAF but was not used operationally. Stored and then sold into civilian restoration as ZS-HTN, crashed 2007 during fire-fighting operations over Silvermine Nature Reserve.

        Even featured in a movie: Doomsday which was released in 2008, after the helo had crashed

              Does it mean that the machine was really delivered to and used by the Zaire AF? Wow. I always thought it was one of those aircraft with marking of a country that actually never bought it.

                They only had one, 9T-SPF (c/n 169) which was the Presidential helicopter.

                  Correct. It was actually a commercial 'JA variant bought in 1975. Sold sometime in 1986 / 87 as far as I can tell.

                  I guess it was a small price to pay by the SAAF to take a possible false-flag vector out of the threat environment, being the only non-SA Frelon south of the equator!

                      I know the Netherlands is not a small air force country but you don't see that much pictures of the Netherlands coast guard. For me this one is a first sighting:
