    Another of the Cape Verde An-26 which I scanned in a long time ago was still learning to scan so not good quality.

      For me the two most mythical creatures are:
      1. Angolan Su-24MK stationed at Catumbela AFB
      2. two or three Ethiopian Su-25TKs at Debre Zeit AFB

      The Angolan Fencer is here... for the ETAF Su-25TKs I still have nothing more than few Google Earth shots indicating they, indeed, do exist..

            some Angolan Fitter pictures surfaced a year ago on a czech plastic kits modelling forum, there is an article devoted to czech/slovakian Su-22 camouflages, worth reading but not in english.

              Wohoooooooooooo... where in the world did you get THIS?


              The Frogfoot is an Su-25UB, not TK, so it seems, as it lacks the fairing at the base of the fin.. still a great find, though

                    Is the Su-25 piloted by Executive Outcomes against UNiTA entirely Angolan ? : http://www.mercenary-wars.net/e-o/sukhoi-bomber.html

                      I think yes. Other Frogfoots have been delivered, just like this B-665. They are still stored at Catumbela, IMHO..

                          Is that the official Nassrallah Air Lines logo on the rear fuselage?
