    They also have/had MiG-21UM and L-39 for overhaul at Aerostar.
    What in the heck is that badge on the tail? I've never seen that one on any aircraft from Mozambique!

        Very interesting! Anybody know of any good images of it? Speaking of Mozambique, see attached Alouette III with flag insignia.

                            Does anybody know what the badge is? It's not the national coat of arms.

                                      Hello Archangelski,

                                      here you find two (2nd & 3rd ) better views of the former Mozambican government's 'coat of arms'... :http://www.airliners.net/search/phot...gsearch=C9-CAA

                                      BUT the pics were taken in 1983 !

                                      Compare with (seem identical ) ;
