        No, only found on FB...
        For info, the related text is : MiG-23MS are ex-Libyan ones, MiG-21UM is an ex-Georgian one and MiG-21bis are ex-Polish ones.

                          Any chance you can find serial numbers of those light blue L-39ZO? Great pictures anyway, many thanks, it seems they are not flightworthy more than 15 years.

                          Btw. inside the FANA L-39SIA is the SPARROWHAWK Head-up display from CMC electronics.

                            Exact designation is CMA-7100 Digital SparrowHawk. The same type is also used on FANA Su-22M-4Ks, as well as Mexican and Moroccan T-6Cs, Korean KAI KT-1Cs (CMA-7150 low profile HUD), Finnish BAe Hawk Mk.51s or IOMAX Archangels of UAE.

                              My pleasure!! Martinez

                              Looks like there is no way to know the serial numbers of those FANA L-39ZOs in light-blue finish for me unless you refer to"Aero Vodochody",

                              These light-blue L-39ZOs in storage were said to be photographed at Escola de Armadas e Servios- Namibe.

                              Martinez!! Sounds like you're now working in the aviation industry.

                              In that case, Mind if you can upload more FANA pics in your collection here?

                              http://www.aero.cz/cz/o-nas/kontakty/

                              Hopefully they can take care of your inquiry.

                                Hi buddy, do you really think it is a good idea? Where would you sent your inquiry when looking for FANA Su-22 serial nummbers, to the KNAAPO???? There were three L-39ZO grounded and abandoned at Luanda airfield military site since 2000. Probably they were delivered in late nineties from Iraq, Syria or Libya.

                                  Are you serious that these light-blue L-39ZOs grounded in the hangar building with flat tyre were sighted at the Luanda AFB?

                                  IMHO, There was the only one light-blue L-39ZO prominently photographed next to MiG-21,23 in open storage at the Luanda AFB.

                                  Contrary to your eye-witness, The facebook from which I found these two light-blue L-39ZOs was singing a diffrent tune. there was a very short caption in portuguese "Sargentos recm formados na*Escola de Armadas e Servios- Namibe" that reads " Newly trained sergeants in School and Armed Services-Namibe" in english.

                                  Anyway, It's highly interesting in that they were supplied from multiple sources like Iraq, Syria, Libya.

                                  First time that I had ever heard about it.

                                  BTW, Do you have any pics of some weathered FANA Su-25s in non-airworthy condition?

                                  I saw several pics of them dumped in the numerous dispersals at the Catumbela AFB.

                                  Mostly from the ones photographed by the russians, then uploaded at the most popular russian photo album website like foto.mail.ru...etc.

                                  TIA

                                      I`m dead serious, bcs we delivered and maintained military aircrafts for them, such as the L-29,L-39 and the Su-22 in time period from 1998 to 2008.
                                      Regarding those light blue L-39ZO, till now do not know their origin, but all three were located at Luanda airport since 2000 in a non-flightworthy condition. Presumably in 2015-16, one L-39ZO has been transfered to the School of Armed Services in Namibe as a teaching aid. In 2016, one L-39ZO is still present at the Luanda airport military museum, third one is hidden somewhere.....
                                      You can check Google Earth by your self, or see attached photo below. Only Iraq, Syria and Libyan airforces received the type L-39ZO in the region of Africa.

                                      P.S. photo below shows two L-39 at Luanda airport(year 2002), third one is on the other side.

                                        Hey!! Martinez buddy. You don't need to be serious about it.

                                        The whereabout of the third one in question can be clarified in this photo.

                                        As I mentioned earlier, exactly two light-blue L-39ZOs were transfered to the school of Armed Services at Namibe.

                                        BTW, Did you take any pics of FANA Su-25s while you was visiting the Catumbela AFB?

                                          sorry, no luck with FANA Su-25, they allowed us to see only the North site of the airfield where all derelict L29 and the Su-22 were parked. I wonder if you guys can guess what aircraft is on this picture below??
