    (not really an 'air force', but certainly a serious unit !)

    friendly, Etienne
    Interesting image from Costa Rica. I have never seen their national insignia presented like that on the wings.

      Surinamese PC-7's

      searching for some pics, I've found this historical info, in a KP thread.... ;


      flex297

      I know of three PC-7s in Suriname.. But since PC-7s are being listed as active in Surinamese service, there must have been some other aircraft, too..

      #479 HB-HMN, serial 111
      #480 HB-HMQ, serial 112
      #481, serial 113

      delivered Oct 1985, returned to Pilatus Mar 1987..

        greetings,

        Funny you should mention that. If you examine the image, you can see a white disk on the fuselage; I presume that is where the Suriname roundel was to be placed. Notice also the black rectangular marking on the fin. I surmise that this is where the Suriname registration number would be placed. Chris Thornberg's World Air Forces site lists three PC-7s operated by Suriname, numbers SAF-111, SAF-112, and SAF-113. It also notes that SAF-111's Swiss ferry registration was HB-HMN, and SAF-112's was HB-HMQ. So it looks like the aircraft in your photo was to be SAF-111, Hendrik. Remove the Swiss ferry registrations and the Swiss insignia, add the Suriname roundels and registration numbers, and I think you'll have it. Only thing is- what about the wing markings? I think the best way to determine that would be to look for other aircraft similarly marked with the Suriname roundel, and extrapolate to the PC-7. Will do some research and get back with everybody. Very, very interesting.

        Well, there are relatively few images of aircraft from Suriname. However, I have ascertained that the registration numbers on their aircraft are replicated on the top left and bottom right wings, apparently without roundels. I assume there are roundels on the top right and lower left wings, too, but this is only conjecture.

          the marking on the tail is doubtful !!

          in fact I'd like to see (in colors !) (& IN FLIGHT) their former roundel, (on a JET ).....................................]

          Can you help ??

          friendly, Etienne

          Google is a good solution but threads friends too : (KERVYN, if you want more, simply ask) but, as GERARD say, rarity in flight !

          F-6 (MiG-19S) :
          Note the Albanian flag on the tail of the Il-14 in the background of the H-5/Il-28 picture.

            The Il-14 with the Albanian flag is most likely a VIP aircraft like the A109 below

                      Albanian flag..

                      Yes, Greg, I've "well" seen the flag in ;

                      Note the Albanian flag on the tail of the Il-14 in the background of the H-5/Il-28 picture.
                      But, I prefer this recent 'red' view, at the Tirana Airport ;http://www.tirana-airport.com/?RoseT...68180231crc508

                      friendly, Etienne

                                      Only a little help to show that Google is not the only possibility to find something (even if it stay a marvelous instrument with infinite (?) knowledge).
                                      That's why threads like this one also exist.
