TBM-3U Avenger Israel 1992

Post by CBR »

I need some help identifying this Avenger. It was photographed by me in Israel in 1992, probably at Herzliya Airport (IATA: HRZ, ICAO: LLHZ).

I identified three Avengers in Israel of which two ended up at Hatzerim (IAF museum) and the third one is probably still at Herzliya.

91741 USN N6829C another one spraying in Israel and now with Israeli AF Museum

69355 USN N7850C Sprayed in Israel. Israel AF Museum, Hazerim Air Base http://www.aerialvisuals.ca/AirframePho ... rial=35962

85506 RCN 385 N6582D was said to be stored in Israel AF Museum but probably still at Herzliya : http://www.aerialvisuals.ca/AirframePho ... rial=35960

So which one is it???

Looking forward to some thoughts, rgds, Carl

There was one being restored at Herzliya in April 2012, seen on a 4Aviation tour, and there are photos of it on the net dated late 2014.

According to WMOOS and various other sources that one is 85506/N6582D

69355/N7850C is on display at Hatzerim, and according to WAMOOS it's been there since June 1990.

Can't see any reference to the third one, this reckons it was at Hatzerim in store, and been there since 1989:

although I can't see any reference to it in WAMOOS.

This would suggest therefore that if it was at Herzliya it's 85506/N6582D, if it was at Hatzerim it's one of the other two!
