Seen at the 1976 Farnborough Airshow, this aircrat was a maunfacturers demonstrator. It went on to become TC-AOS and F-GOBP. It crashed at Agen-La Garenne (AGF), France, with two fatalities on 22 June 1999 whilst being used for parachute dropping.
Ex ECT-135, seen here with the 'T' taped over. It visited Australia in pursuit of an RAAF order for a DHC-4 Caribou replacement. A further quarter of a century was to pass before the Alenia C-27J was selected. By that time the Caribous had been retired and the CN295 had replaced the CN235 as CASA's contender.
