Portugal April 2000

Post by AKS2364 » Fri Mar 29, 2024 10:26 am


Hoping to find someone who was on Globemaster tour to Portugal in April 2000.

Got a few bits still unsure about.

11/4/00 Alverca

Is 6403 Noratlas correct?
How many T37's were visible ? Got 5 numbers listed but put 8 in my notes!

Scrapyard..assumed to be Arranho I have 4 numbers listed 5523(A7), 0097(G91) 460 (G91) 1809 (??) anyone confirm anything on these.


1651-32 which i assume is a build number.. no idea
Helicopters listed Alouette 3. H230 (137) Probably should be 5137..now Angola AF
Assuming these numbers are build numbers also 5416,1549,1299,1550... 5416 i've put Gazelle down, other 3 Alouette 3's.
D-HAXW (1594) Puma.. probably French

13/4/00 Sintra

Can anyone confirm these
3357,3480,1769,1774 Do27 & T6's i believe

2 x F84's I have 5337,5338 is that correct
3301,3304,3489 assumed DO27??
also have a Chipmunk listed as 1517 which doesn't appear to be right.
Does CR-CAL Dove have any military background?

Thanks for reading, any info however small really appreciated.

I wasn't on the tour, but the Noratlas '6403' was displayed in the museum at Alverca when I visited in 2017. It's really 6405. Unfortunately the museum displays several aircraft in false markings, especially those which are composite airframes.
Sorry I can't help further, but hopefully there are others out there who can.

1651-32 probably full c/n 680FLP-1651-32 Aero Commander 680 CS-ARO - no mil history

Puma D-HAXW c/n 1594 no mil history - went to ZS-RKC

CR-CAL formerly CR-ACL and nothing else.

For Ota 5337 and 8 are F-86’s, 3301 and 4 are Broussards
3489 is a Do27. All from memory but pretty sure.
