An impressive demonstration of Moroccan air power - an air-to-air refuelling capable KC-130H Hercules with an F-5F Tiger II plugged into the drogue under each wing, flanked by a Mirage F1EM and the most potent aircraft in its inventory, the Block 52 F-16C.
Seen on static display at this year's Marrakech Airshow, this Alpha Jet has been specially modified for a cloud-seeding programme called "Al Ghait" which included the installation of a weather radar, hence the different shaped nose cone.
The Moroccan Gendarmerie operates a diverse range of rotary types including the Alouette II, EC135 and as seen here, the AS355F-1, performing a wide range of duties including search and rescue and medical evacuation.
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
