C-117D in Oz?

5 posts in this topic

Are there or have there ever been any C-117D's in Australia? I've spent some time searching, Airliners.net and Google image but haven't found a single one.

I'd like to get a repaint of a real life Australian C-117D but I'm beginning to think there's no such thing! :(

Thanks.

Sorry George Australia never had this aircraft in its Military inventory. As for its "civil" inventory in Australia, I am 99% sure it was not there either....?

Cheers,

Tim

yes, I looked at all 103 C-117's ever built, and not a singe one made it's base in Oz. Maybe any of the US Navy birds visited, but that's it.

The closest I found one was in the Philippines, which I painted:
