    Percival Pembroke Belgian Air Force

    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category P3D / P4D Add-Ons - Jankees Military

    Description: This folder contains a repaint for the Percival Sea Prince by Rob Richardson, in the colors of RM-7 of the Belgian Air Force, in the paint scheme it wore in its first year of service. In 1953 the Belgian Government ordered 12 Percival Pembroke's through Contract N SP140 as a replacement for the ageing Avro Anson.The aircraft was used for short-range transport and liaison flights. Between 1956 and 1957 several brand-new Pembrokes were stored at Wevelgem awaiting a future detachment to the Belgian Congo, which eventually never materialized.

    A number of Pembrokes were also used for the benefit of the Belgian National Geographical Institute that used the aerial photographs obtained with the Pembrokes to produce very detailed maps of the country. In 1978 the Pembrokes were struck of charge after their replacement, the Swearingen Merlin III became operational. All but two Pembrokes were sold to the rather dark company Air America (not to be confused with the CIA-supported Air America that was operational in South-East Asia), which was owned by a drug dealer. After some very adventurous careers in South America, several former Belgian Pembrokes were acquired and preserved in the USA. RM-7 is preserved in Belgium at Melsbroek air base by the Dakota Historical Center 15th Wing.

    Repaint by Jan Kees Blom, based on the paint kit by Rob Richardson.
