Photographer's Remark

Even though still carrying the combined unit markings of ET 1/63 and ET 1/62 on the forward fuselage, this Noratlas in fact last operated for Escadron de Convoyage 70 (EdC 70). This French unit was known for its unusual codes, which often violated many rules. This particular Noratlas carried code 070-MF (should have been 70-MF), which for reasons unknown was painted on the aircraft incorrectly, as MF-070. It came to Germany in 1987 and spent some time in storage at Manching before moving on to this collection in Koblenz in 1990.
