50 years in service with the Fuerza Aerea Colombiana - Hughes 500M FAC4241 (23rd of April 1968 - 23rd of April 2018!).

FAC4241 is also the very first 500 of all versions to come off the production line in Culver City. A history-maker.

Nice Find. I haven't even heard of them using this. It is an Aztec as a person who has flown one. It's also a Piper Tomahawk in the background.

Coded 9Q-CEB

I assume the Piper Tomahawk is a civilian aircraft. As it has a company name on the side. The AF use's Cessna 150's which is very similar to Tomahawk. I believe Jin-Ho supplied the only pix I have of the 150 as it has a person standing in front of it.

I've been looking a long time for pics of the Royal Flight of Nepal. Just found this one which is a thumbnail shot of an eBay auction. Only one missing now is a pix of the RF Short Skyvan. Sorry for the quality but it's only 5KB. This is 9N-RF3 Antonov An-2.

Chris,
9N-RF3 is actually a Chinese-built Y-5 I think.

I had it as a Y-5 just quickly put down An-2. I would have bid on the pix if it was still active. At least we know one is somewhere (a better copy)
