Hided in a hangar, this Pilatus PC-7, one of two in the Chadian Air Force inventory. In 2008, the aircraft was not airworthy as spare parts were needed to bring it back in the air. This airframe was in 1983 known as HB-HLB with Pilatus Flugzeugwerke AG, then it was sold to Cippa/Sasmat as F-GDMF in July 1983, in March 1985 the trainer was sold to Chjad as TT-QAB. Notable are the hardpoints underneath the wings. These can be used for fueltanks, but also for rocketpods or iron bombs. As Chad used weapons with the PC-7s, Pilatus stopped any support.
