        That doesn't look like US coat of arms to me.. There are few notable differences.
        Agree on FAES serial, though. A very nice find !!!

            Guys,

            Thats the US seal for sure!

            So no chance those hueys are from El Salvador...

            In fact those machines are UH-1 Hueys II property of the U.S. Department of State Air Wing flying anti-narcotics missions in Afghanistan between 2006-2010. they were flown by private contractors...

                              Very nice!

                              How many Tucanos did Iraq actually operate? The number published through the 1980s was "80+" but I think that was based on the number of CKD kits supplied to Egypt; not sure how many of those were actually assembled.

                                88 Tucano were supplied to Iraq. They were operated exclusively by the Air Academy in Tikrit until 2003. All pilots in Iraq trained first on AS-202 Bravo (48 supplied) then on the Tucano planes before moving onto L39 (80 supplied) and then MiG21UM / F7B for "advanced training".

                                The PC7 (52 supplied) and PC9 (20 supplied) by contrast seemed to be mostly as FAC / COIN planes.

                                      Wonder why Egyptian Tucanos sport the same paint scheme.. most likely coming from the same kits?

                                          An other question !

                                          in order to (try to) complete my 'ww'-C-130 collection, I'd like to see a convincing view of

                                          one of the RDC, i.e. with such a marking ; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Air_For...c_of_the_Congo

                                          thanks in advance,
