Photo Comment

The PAC750 is a weird looking aircraft type. The New Zealand built aircraft made its first flight in 2001 and up to date (2019) it is still in production. Some 200 have been built so far. The P-750 has a relatively high power-to-weight ratio, so its an ideal airframe for paradrops, but also for humanitarian operations in hot environments.
