After the T-34, students of the Ecole de Pilotage flew the T-37B, of which 14 were delivered in 1996 as replacements for the ageing CM.170s. The aircraft were around 50+ years old and retained the livery of their previous operator, the USAF's 64th FTW at Reese AFB, TX. This one under maintenance had an FY 60 serial, the one behind is ever older (57-304, c/n 40237)

This Hercules was open for inspection of the fitted MAFFS system, which carries up to 2,700 gallons of pressurised fire retardant. It appears that transports of the Force Aérienne Royal Marocaine are gradually loosing the old CNA- prefixes in favour of a more conventional civil-style CN- presentation

While most of the aircraft displayed by Morocco's FAR (Royal Armed Forces) at Aeroexpo had an emphasis on the humanitarian mission, this Gazelle clearly has offensive capability and can launch anti-tank missiles. From the Escadre Hélicoptère at Rabat-Salé. Morocco had 24 and exhibited one in the show halls fully stripped to a shell. Another was placed in the static park by French company Aerotech in "Gazelle Modernisée" guise

For me, easily the highlight of Aeroexpo Marrakech were the daily low-level demonstrations by Herks, the first a tanker with a pair of F-5s, the second a locust sprayer and this one in MAFFS firebomber mode. The view from the show area was straight into the sun and I was determined to find a vantage point on the other side. This involved a challenging trek to a spot beyond the civil terminal but I arrived just in the nick of time and was rewarded by a whole sequence of shots like this

Another good example of the attractive camouflage schemes worn by Moroccan military aircraft, so much nicer to see than the currently ubiquitous grey or olive drab. Italy supplied Morocco with 12 of these licence-built heavylifters, six in 1979 and six in 1982, of which nine are said now to be in operation with the Rabat-Salé based Escadre Hélicoptère

Out on the operational flightline, with Islander CN-TWR (qv) alongside. Traditionally, Moroccan military transports have often carried civil-style registrations but with a CNA- prefix. They are now quite mixed and an example of more conventional presentation was the CN.235 displayed in static at Aeroexpo, CN-AME. Seven were delivered by CASA in 1990

Morocco originally had F-5A/B/RF-5s from the US plus some supplied by the Shah of Iran. One was used to attack a RAM 727 carrying the King in a failed coup in 1972; many others were shot down by Polisario guerrillas. 20 of the newer Tiger IIs arrived from 1980 thanks to Saudi aid, with 10 or so from the US later. The survivors have been upgraded adding HUD, MFD/WDNS, RWR, ECM and new air-to-air/air-to-ground weaponry. They are based at Meknes with the Escadre de Chasse "Tigre"

Seven out of 12 Magisters in external storage at Menara AB, having been supplanted by Alpha Jets in the advanced trainer role some years ago. The other six here are 218, 215, 176, 123, 227 and 226, followed by SA330L CN-ARY. About 21 were received in the late sixties, refurbished in France but mainly from WGAF stocks (157 was ex AA+248). Some of the others are preserved on poles at various bases around the country

The Moroccan locust is a particularly virulent pest and the huge swarms periodically cause devastation to crops across the region. Here we have a Hercules demonstrating the spraying technique employed as one of the measures to combat this menace, using a special rig in the cargo bay

From the Escadron de Chasse "Atlas" at Sidi Slimane, this is one of 27 remaining Moroccan Mirages undergoing major update work under the French Astrac programme, involving avionics, airframe, engine and weaponry upgrades. Commencing in 2010, two per month were due to be completed, bringing these 30-year old aircraft right up to date. This is in addition to the 24 Block 50/52 F-16C/Ds received after a June 2008 order

A view of CNA-OC as she pulls away after her MAFFS drop during the short flying show at AeroExpo. Based at Kénitra AB, a former US Navy station on the coast north-east of Casablanca, the Moroccan AF took delivery of a total of 19 C-130Hs from 1974 onwards, ending with two tankers in 1981. The MAFFS (Modular Airborne FireFighting System) units were acquired in 2002

Displayed at the second Aeroexpo Marrakech in medevac configuration, this rather ungainly-looking helicopter is one of three delivered in 2002 and operated by the Moroccan Navy's 11F on maritime duties from Casablanca's main airport. Equipped to the same standard as French Navy Panthers, they also have radar and forward-looking infra-red pods for surface surveillance. 'Marine Royale' titles are worn on the other side. In the red hats behind are some student airmen
