French Air Force Fennec at Shuttleworth Air Show June 2013, Old Warden, Bedfordshire

By brian17302  
Another set of images from Shuttleworth Military Pageant Air Show,Old Warden, Bedfordshire
This plane is the T-28 Trojan manufactured by North American Aviation
Originally built as a trainer, had an 800HP Radial Engine & 2 bladed propellor.
A number of these planes were purchased for the French Air Force (Armee de l Air) &
modified by Sud Aviation.
They changed the engine to a 1425HP Radial with a 3 bladed prop.
Added hard points on the wings to take Bombs/Rockets & included 2No 50 Calibre machine guns &
armour plated areas for crew protection.
These planes were then painted in desert camoflage & named "Fennec" (which means Desert Fox in English.)
The Fennecs were used for counter insurgency in the Algerian War of Independance in the late 1950s

Thank you for your C&Cs on my previous upload "Avro Lancaster" much appreciated
