This Twin Otter was owned by the French Air Force and operated on behalf of the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) in Sinai. It has been destroyed during a dramatic crash on 6 May 2007 in Sinai during a flight between El Gora Air Base and Santa Katarina (SKV). It is supposed the pilot attempted an emergency landing on a road but collided with a truck and crashed. Unfortunately all the 9 persons on board perished. RIP.
