Hi Arch,

The C-130 on the 1st was indeed CN-AOR. The CN235 unfortunately was MB which was also at the show.

Regards, Paul
C-130H CN-AOE visited during the afternoon on the first and departed post 17:00.

The next morning Armee de l'Air C-160R R93/61-ZK departed at 08:53 LT, so is likely to have arrived late on Sunday.

A white BD-700 was seen departing on Sunday evening-IIRC M-LWSA.

Greetings Cujo
I have the E.25-52 in my book as 79-35 (have no picture so not sure, can you double check?)
I have a picture of Al Fursan number 4 on Thursday by then it was serial 436 on the lefthand nosewheeldoor. Can you check your pictures again?

I can confirm from photos that the Al Fursan number 4 was 432 *(left nosewheel door) when it flew on Saturday. Could the spare also have been coded 4???

Also Aguilla E25.52 was definitely coded 79-34

This are the Fursans that left for Marrakech the 17th:

430/3
432/4
434/5
436/-
437/6
439/7
440/1
441/7
442/2

Numbers can be applied fast, and 436 had no number when it left his homebase.
I had doubts about 442 cos it isnt in the database but since you seen it I am pretty sure I read it right.

I can confirm from my Thursday pictures(all lefthand side) : 440/1, 442/2, 430/3, 436/4 and 434/5, can also confirm that Friday afternoon i saw at least two MB339s being towed to another sunshed. So pretty good possible they changed numbers by then. Perhaps others can check the Thursday pictures to see what the other codes were.

Anyone for the Marche Verte numbers on Thursday?

Best Regards Pieter,
Both are right.
The C.101EB was coded 79-34 and you're also right.
On Thursday, AF"4" was indeed 436, on Saturday it was 432 as written.
Others on Thursday were 440/1; 442/2; 430/3; 434/5; 437/6 & 441/7.
I forgot to point out, that my notes were from Saturday.
So the eightth MB.339NAT is now found :D . Were there indeed nine aircraft??
Just to confirm the FT"0".

Do you have any idea at what time CN-AOE arrived? when we departed our mid-runway spot around 12:00 hrs CN-AOR was still on the ramp. When we emerged from the terminal for boarding at 14:30 hrs there still was a RMAF Herc on the ramp and we assumed it was CN-AOR but could it be CN-AOE?
