North American Texan/Harvard/Wirraway/BT-9/BT-14 - Congo (Katanga)
T-6G Texan 'DoSolle'
Serial: KA-30 Unit: Force Aerienne Katangaise Kolwezi, October 1962. Camouflage scheme: Olive Green, Medium Grey uppersurfaces, Light Blue undersides. Roundels are absent. Note: Copper Katangan cross under cockpit. Serials are white. Propeller spinner is Bright Green.
One of the best-known Avikat T-6Gs was the example serialled 'KA-30'. The serial was applied by hand, and quite crudely. Note the orange 'X' bellow the cockpit, which represented the national marking: this was added at a later stage, since the same Texan was seen with its nick-name ('DoSolle'?) applied in front of the cockpit only.
