The world meet in 1979 was out of them. I had the dubious honor of jumping them. Not one of my favorite aircraft. Tough transition going from a C-182 for practice and the nationals to a nasty, high-speed tailgate at the world meet. My dislike may be clouded by my experience Wink

Looks alot like a C-119 that the US military used to use, Different nose and the tailboom strakes are different, maingear too. French built? Looks like it will be fun but wear good hearing protection.
