Chile - NavyBack to Country
Also now devoid of serials are the PC-7s that are still going strong.
Both the Chilean air force and navy received O-2 from the United States. The navy received eight serialled 330-337 that were originally split between VC-1 and the naval air club but are now all with VC-1, this 335 being one of them.
The AS332B and AS532SC Cougar are known as SH-32 in Chilean naval use. Seven were delivered to HA-1 two of which suffered accidents and their wrecks are kept at Viña del Mar. The survivors are painted in gloss petrol colours but lack serials...
