    Yes, that is the Mi-8T I was talking about. It appeared to be in a visibly less flyworthy condition, though.
    Greatly appreciated.

    The Hind was rather mundane looking, typical Russian/Ukrainian/ex-CIS scheme with the CAR roundel being on the typical place behind the wings. Judging from the few seconds aired it appeared to be in a quite useful condition (unless the many refugees surrounding it have stripped all hardware in the meantime which is quite possible). Will keep on looking.

      Here's the Mi-24. Captured the still image from the video you mentioned. Very interesting- never knew they had them.

                Two Mi-24V were delivered from Ukraine in June 2011.

                    Well, dear Small Air Force experts !

                    Let's make the real thing. Here is image of Curtiss "Osprey". I think, it belongs to one of South American Air Force (or one of Central American AF). What particular Air Force is this ? Sorry - no better image:

                      Asks Gerard, he is a much better expert in roundels.

                      PS : if it can helps somebody, here is another picture of a Curtiss that seems to wear same kind of roundels :

                        Well, it's look like Venezuela - but at first look only. But Venezuela has horizontal stripes on rudders:

                        More versions ? Or, maybe, during some unknown period this country has version of insignia with vertical stripes ?
