    That doesn't look like a standard Paraguayan roundel on the Caravan. Maybe I'm going blind, but might it be a variant with the yellow star in the center?

          Hi Etienne, not really a "novelty". The Caravan pictures I post are from december 2011.

              Question have you ever seen photo's of Bolivian Air Force SF.260 aircraft inside Bolivia ??
              There is a factory photo taken at Vergiate, Italy, showing all six F.260WB FAB-180 - FAB-185.

              But I am looking for Bolivian in service photo's of the SF.260 fleet. Anyone ?

              best regards,
              Hendrik

                                The greens Bolivian Hueys have a interesting detail... they say "Perigo" (in Portuguese) on their tailbooms.. instead of "Peligro" (Spanish for danger).. those are the first two Hueys donated by Brazilian Air Force to Bolivian AF in October 03rd, 2012... their serial are FAB-726 and FAB-727

                                  Thanks for precision. Didn't notice the Potuguese language for the "danger" mention on tailboom.

                                      Would anyone out there possibly have any photos of Ethiopian Air Force Canberras? This is a long shot, as after trawling the web I have yet to find more than the classic shot of one being test flown of the English countryside. If anyone has any photos in their archives of them in squadron service, I would dearly love to see them.
