Pictured by a member of my family 50 years ago at Oran La Sénia French Air Force air base N° 141. The aircraft has the markings of EC 3/20 "Oranie with Spa 96 insignia on the left side (which is an odd position in comparison of the other aircraft of the squadron). The picture is supposed to be taken in the begining of 1961.
Now painted as 126937, but was originally 126998 with US Navy since 1961. Was used by French Air Force as N° 37 from 1961 to 1977; then given to Chad Air force which used it until 1982. Stored at N'Djamena until acquired by Didier Chable in 1988 and restored. Later to France and operated as a warbird.
