Light aircraft like Tetras 912 and these Joker J300s, are increasingly finding their way to African air forces. Cheap, easy to maintain and not so complex that they can be beaten by the climate.
Cessna 172FR TL-KAB.
By the time this photo was taken, March 2007, only the c/n was painted on the tail-boom. It took up later its serial of TL-KFB.
C-130A TL-KNK is currently stored at Bangui.
