Yemeni MiG-29SMT Fulcrum

When was this photo taken? Does Yemen have any Fulcrums left by now?

The insignia on the vertical fins of the EC-145, as well as one of the flag markings on the Bolivian K-8, is the Wiphala, which an emblem, commonly used as a flag, representing some native peoples of all the Andes that include today's Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and parts of Argentina, Chile and Colombia.

No clue.. exact date of this pic Yama!!

But when The houthi rebel/President Saleh coalitioned.

All the Yemeni AF equipments in the The Daylami AFB (The Sana'a IAP) could survive in 2015 ..excepting some of il-fated Yemeni AF equipment destroyed in saudi-led air strikes.

Here I have attached two pics of Yemeni AF equipments that evaded the woes so that Everyone could certainenly note the houthi rebels walked in to the Daylami AFB, then closely examining the surviving Yemeni AF warplanes including their foremost Fulcrum fleet.

Does anyone have any photos of the following members of the Hughes OH-6A/500M/500C family.

Nicaragua - OH-6A in Nicaraguan or Sandanista service.

Colombia - Hughes 500M or 500C in service in the 1968-1990 time-frame, as well as early-service photos of the Colombian 500E.

Haiti - 2 Hughes 500Cs, period of operation unknown but presumably 1970's-80's.

Dominican Republic - OH-6A in early service/prior to current blue scheme.

Contras - operated a handful of Hughes 500s, including a 500C. Does anyone have any pics?

Mauritania - operated 4 500M-D Defenders apparently.

Bahrain - 2 500Ds.

Cyprus - 2 500s (could these be confused with the 2 Argentinian UN 500Ds that fly there?)

Both Morocco (Hughes 500M-D Defender) and Bolivia (Hughes 500M) are rumoured to have operated the 500 but I've never seen a photo of either. I'm pretty sure Bolivia didn't fly the 500 but I'm open to correction if anyone has photos to say otherwise. Thanks for any assistance anyone can offer.

Blue Monday.

I don't think some of these countries operated Hughes:

Cyprus - yes, confusion with UN aircraft
Mauritania - confusion with BN-2 Defender?
Morocco
