Remark Photographer
F-AZHK / 127002/20-LN (cn 7802) Quite a story for that Skyraider : Built in 1951 in Douglas plant El Secundo, CA for the US Navy (BuNo 127002), stored in Litchfield Park, AZ and then sold to French AF in 1959 for ground attack purposes in mainly in Algeria. Assigned in 1972 to the Guard of Gabonese President Omar Bongo and reformed 1976. It came back in France in 1992 and was stored after engine failure. Sold to its present owner in 2009, flights resumed in 2010 after major revision including an engine change. Seen here during evening training before the airshow
