Although this former German Air Force Harvard has "52-8569" on its tail (which would make it former BF-067), this actually is 53-4623, the former AA-682. After having flown for the German Air Force, it also served with the air forces of Portugal, Mozambique, and South Africa. It is seen here undergoing restoration with HARS, in Australia. After restoration at HARS was completed in 2018, it went to the USA wearing its original German serial (AA-682).
