Finningley 1969

Back to Country

Date: 20 September 1969

Made by:


N2501 Noratlas, FAF
The N2501 Noratlas was a common sight in the 60s and could easily be identified by its twin tailboom configuration. This 166/61-NA was probably support for the Patrouille de France, which were flying with Fouga Magisters in those years.
