Albanian Air Force

I've searched, & found some 'good' video's of former Albanian jets, but all ones in b/w :mad:

this is the ONLY "in flight" COLOR pic I could find of an Albanese jet !! but of a really poor quality :[ATTACH=CONFIG]219646[/ATTACH]

the marking on the tail is doubtful !!

in fact I'd like to see (in colors !) (& IN FLIGHT) their former roundel, (on a JET ).....................................[ATTACH=CONFIG]219647[/ATTACH]

Can you help ??

friendly, Etienne

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:

Google is a good solution but threads friends too : (KERVYN, if you want more, simply ask) but, as GERARD say, rarity in flight !

Yes. That's right. Etienne is referring to the older Albanian one with the star.

thanks to you all, Albanian-searchers !!!!

indeed, their roundel changed in 1991, if I'm right..

Yes, Archangelski ;

(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

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.
