      Guyana 2















      Comment


        bravo, first time I ever see this :-)

        Comment


          Guyana!

          Banshee, the images from Guyana are absolutely incredible- thanks! I rank them among the most amazing aircraft images I have ever seen. Note the photo of the airborne Jet Ranger, with the flag insignia on the tail- first I have ever seen of that. And note the Skyvan coded 8R-GRR in the background of the photo of the light helicopter (does anybody know the type?)- it appears to have the black-yellow-black roundel on the bottom of its wing! That is the first example I have ever seen. Thanks again!

            those skyvan shots really made my day...!!!!!
            Ive spent several years waiting to see any decent pic of guyanese skyvan...
            THANK YOU VERY MUCH BANSHEE...!!!!

            btw, in that pic; what appears to be a roundel its the place where the support strut joins the wing with the oval cover removed... I guess the yellow shade in oval shape is the zinc chromate paint..


            now some videos...

              More Guyanese Aircraft

              The first photo of Skyvan 8R-GGK is from Virtual Tourist, at http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/p/m/33d56f/.

              The second is from airliners.net, at
              http://www.airliners.net/photo/Guyan...next_id=NEXTID.

              This is the same Skyvan that's in the third and fourth images Banshee posted, but with a shield of some sort on the fin. Can anybody identify it? Thanks.

                Thanks for the clarification on the roundel, or lack thereof. Goes to show you how the eyes see what they want to at times, instead of what is really there! And the videos are wonderful. Now, if anybody's got images of Mi-8s or Do-228s from Bhutan, I'll die a happy man!

                  Thanks To All

                  I have enjoyed these small air forces threads so much. I am astounded at what I have learned through them, and am amazed at the number of fantastic images I have amassed. I'll be building models well into my next life because of you all! Thanks sincerely to everybody who has contributed, and continues to do so!

                              Angolan Mig-23ML forced landing

                              Hi Folks, I got permission to post these from the guy who took them.

                              Angolan Air Force Mig-23ML operated by Executive Outcomes and flown by ex South African Air Force Mirage pilots on ground attack missions against UNITA in the Mid 1990's.
                              I think it was July 94, while returning from a strike, this aircraft developed an engine problem.

                              He glided 25nm to a sucessful wheelsup landing.
                              The wheels would not extend fully without hydraulics and the aircraft suffered minimal damage..until.. the Angolans shifted it off the runway sideways with a tank rather than recover it to a hangar!!

                              Anyone got any more pics of the Angolan Mig-23s?

                              [/IMG]

                                    Angola?

                                    Found this over at Airlinerhobby.com

                                    No details of when and where, but the Roundel may be East German or Ukraine. Camo and serial look Angolan.

                                    Or is it?

                                      This is an East German MiG-21. It was used as instructional airframe, that's probably the reason for the strange camo. Details can be found at Holger Mller's great site:

                                      http://www.mig-21.de/ddrverbleib.htm

                                      that's what it looks like today

                                      Just noticed you can see a Trabbi at the left (a crappy East German cult car)

                                        Yes, it is an East German MiG-21M !!

                                        They flow from July 1969 to 10.01.1974 for the JG-9 with Location Peenemnde.
