Three ex USAF C-26Bs were delivered to the Colombian air force in November 1997. FAC1240 was damaged after a few years of service in these colours and appeared in the museum in April 2003. The two others received substantial upgrades in 2002, until one of them was also damaged beyond repair in 2006 and stored at Rionegro and stripped for spareparts. Eventually, the last one transferred to the Colombian national police by 2018.

A bit of a mystery is this Beaver preserved in the Colombian Aerospace Museum. Until at least 1997, msn 297 was preserved in the museum, but this aircraft was put up for sale in 2003. The Beaver in the picture, with a dent visible in the wing, appeared in the museum in 2004...

Marked as FAC318, this is likely the former FAC312A, one of six former US Navy T-34Bs delivered as attrition replacement to augment the Colombian air force fleet of T-34As that was noted retired at Madrid in 1990. This aircraft showed up in the museum in the mid-90s and has two US Navy callsign plates in the cockpit.
