Having become familiar with seeing Tony deBruyn perform in his Bronco it was interesting to see the French counterpart, also an ex WGAF target-tug. The German OV-10Bs had a clear dome replacing the rear cargo door and a seat in the cargo bay giving a view of what was going on behind. Now owned by the Amicale des Avions Anciens de la Drôme

A flying survivor from the 396 of the French equivalent of the DHC Beaver. It saw action against Algerian guerillas in the late 1950s, but the noisy P&W R-985 engine was a disadvantage as it could be heard approaching long before other aircraft

Unfortunately the "Star of Switzerland" flew later than scheduled and by the time she had been towed out from the crowd, the sun had slipped behind the mountains. However, the firey and smokey start-up was spectacular, as was that sound on take-off

First flying in 1945, a total of 55 P-2s trainers were built, some as an armed variant. Parts from older Swiss AF aircraft were incorporated, including landing gear parts from Me109s. This one was built in 1950 and served the military until around 1980

Apparently originally a Fury FB.10 two-seater delivered to Iraq as '324' in 1949. Debut in these colours last year. Ex N58SF/N1324 and rebuilt with a Wright R-3350, now masquerading as WH589 (the actual Sea Fury with this serial flies as N985HW and was in the UK in the 1970s as CF-CHB/G-AGHB)

Apparently originally a Fury FB.10 two-seater delivered to Iraq as '324' in 1949. Debut in these colours last year. Ex N58SF/N1324 and rebuilt with a Wright R-3350, now masquerading as WH589 (the actual Sea Fury with this serial flies as N985HW and was in the UK in the 1970s as CF-CHB/G-AGHB)
