Owned by Field Aircraft Services ex Ghana Airways 9G-AAW. It went to Skyline Sweden August 1976 as SE-FOZ. Crashed and w/o on approach to Stockholm Bromma 15 January 1977 due to icing. This was caused by the number 2 and number 3 engines running too long at reduced power (during the descent) and rendering the temperature of the anti ice system too low to be effective.
This Aéronautique Navale C-47 had been withdrawn from use by the mid 1980s, and was preserved at Nimes-Garons by 1986. It is seen here 23 years later, on display along the D42 road on the northwest side of the airbase in great early evening light. But it is no longer there. In early May 2010 the aircraft was dismantled and trucked off to Lorient airbase, where it arrived on May 6th. Following some restoration work and a repaint it had been placed on display at the base by September 2010.
