Firefly FR.Mk.I
Unit: Royal Ethiopian Air Force
Serial: 607 (F5645)

This aircraft one from the original batch of nine aircraft delivered to Ethiopia directly from the UK. The aircraft is shown here with RAF-style serial, as originally delivered. In later years of their service, Ethiopian Fireflies wore smaller, Swedish-style serials.

Firefly FR.Mk.I
Unit: Royal Ethiopian Air Force
Serial: 610 (F5645)

Ethiopians have certainly purchased a total of nine Fireflies from the UK and 14 from Canada. It is likely that 16 additional airframes were obtained from the Netherlands, in 1954, but their delivery was never confirmed. This ex-Canadian example was photographed in 1965, already in inoperational condition, at Debre Zeit. The artwork depicts '610', another ex-Canadian Firefly FR.Mk.1, as seen in the mid-1950s.
