I honestly thought I would prove you wrong with a quick google images search in Albanian but it seems colour images of flying Albanian Air Force jets are few and far between. I guess they didn't go in for military aviation photography much in the People's Republic and I doubt the jets saw much air time after 1992.

Not sure if anybody knows why, but I haven't seen any profiles posted on the Wings Palette site since April 22. Does anybody have any updates about that site?

You're, of course, right ! Not really the look of a Do27. My big fingers have, one more time, missed the good key. :very_drunk:

thanks to you all, Albanian-searchers !!!! indeed, their roundel changed in 1991, if I'm right.. Yes, Archangelski ;
Google is a good solution but threads friends too : (KERVYN, if you want more, simply ask) but, as GERARD say, rarity in flight !
(my first name is Etienne ; yes, you may...) (see also your p.m. box) I .. 'just & only' ask you to find one rarity IN FLIGHT...:D friendly, Etienne

Nice, I am still looking for Surinam PC-7's with Surinam Air Force roundels and serials. If they were ever painted on. I have seen them only with Swiss ferry registrations. greetings, Hendrik

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