    F-86Ks Folks:

    Good Day!


    ...back to the "K" models with NATO & S. American countries! Included for now is N.A F-86K FAH 1100 in those days. S/N 55-4899 c. SPS Base in '77. This is 1 of 6 samples bought from Venezuela c. May 1970s. One more sample flew, FAH 1101 S/N 55-4882 c. 1975 & the rest ended-up at the FAH boneyard or Base Gate Guardians. Photo via J. Bassett.



    p.s We are interested to get some pictures of the NMF (Natural Metal Finish) Luftwaffe samples in open storage at Dornier/Oberpaffenhofen area c. 1960s & trace its history. Tks in advance

    Ozfuryfan/XFAH 603 Folks:

    Good day!

    Greetings fm across the pond & congratulations again for your fine restoration job!





    (FYI): You may display with confidence the Buno 123168 & the XFAH 603 logos on your aircraft. There seems to be a lot of conflicting info/data regarding its true id. There is also no other Buno 123168 reg in the US FAA Files as indicated by other sources. Job well done!! Photo via FB Australian Historical Aircraft

    Guatemalan AF Sikorsky H-19s Folks/Sidsiko:

    Good Day!

    Some new info/data has emerged concerning the ID of the 4/5 samples used by FAG c. 1960s. The included picture is the poss S/n 51-3927 an XFAH 820 that ended in Guatemala as a SAR sample FAG 820 w/ the same s/n. (Now in a dark blue scheme). It looks like the FAG 110 Reg was used at one time by diff FAG H-19s. We are also working on the photo of the ID plate behind the cabin. 2 B Cont.. Photo via FMAH.

    B-26 Invader Folks:

    Good day fm across the pond!

    Among the many B-26 Invader Bay of Pigs stories, is the b/w pic below shown as FAR 933, a solid nose model. C. Apr '61 at Miami Apt. For many years we believed that this particular sample was the wrong aircraft. Well maybe,... but with the wrong FAR Reg#. According to new accounts of a FAR Chilean pilot (Advisor), there was one lonely solid nose sample at Santiago de Cuba area, a spare parts a/c who somehow was made airworthy during the conflict which later crashed on take -off at the hands of a young Cuban pilot. It was indicated to have been B-26B FAR 937. New details as they emerge later. 2 B Cont...Photo via AEC.
