Former registrations F-BDZT and F-WZBL. Originally built as an NC.853 with a Minié 4DC.30 engine. There were problems with this powerplant and stored NC.853s were auctioned in 1952 and converted to NC.854 or NC.858 standard with Continental engines.
The Donnet-Lévêque 'Flying Fish' was a succesful early flying boat, selling to Austria-Hungary, Denmark and Sweden.before WWI, and the precursor of the FBA (Schreck) types. This replica of a Type C model has wheels like the original prototype in 1912, and was first flown here at La Ferté-Alais by Edmond Salis on 16 November 2017.
Built in 1959, this Bird Dog was delivered to the French army as 24705. To F-GDPF in 1986. Seen with fake rocket launchers and painted as an aircraft of the US Army's 203rd Reconnaissance Airplane Company Hawkeyes, Vietnam, late 1960s.
Marked 'Parachutisme de Paris - Peronne' on the other side. The airfield is 150 km from Paris - not too far, apparently, for those wanting to jump out of a perfectly good aeroplane. D-FIPS, a PC-6, seems to be based here too.
Aggressor aircraft of Dutch company Skyline. Originally built for the East German air force in 1977. Formerly ES-TLE. Now furnished with a US registration, some kind of dome under the belly and a picture of Neptune on the tailfin.
In the country for the Netherlands Air Force Days. Although it was flown, most tax payers only saw it from far away, since a huge section of the crowdline was cluelessly blocked by tents and other obstacles (not reserved viewing areas). Also no effort was made to use the taxiway on the public side.
The first A330 tanker destined for the Netherlands as part of the Multinational Multi-Role Tanker Transport Fleet (MMF). I think this is the way forward for Europe's defence, with pooled assets but with individual aircraft still under national control.
