Ola, CASA Twin Turboprops - Let's see yours...

Postby TonyO on Mon 28 Dec 2009, 2:14 pm

Haven't started one of these threads for a while, so I thought why not hit them with a bit of a toughie. They might look a little boring but CASA's range of twin-turboprop transports are woefully under-rated. The C212 didn't sell brilliantly but the 235 and 295 are now in service with many air forces as a cheap and cost-effective airlifter and they can now be found pretty much all over the world in ever increasing numbers.

So here's my challenge, post pictures of C212s, CN235s and CN295s, three pictures per post, but as many posts as you wish. Indonesian Airtech-built versions can also be included for those who like exotica.

I'll start with one for now, a CN295 of the Spanish Air Force...

Hi, Chile was one of the first user of these aircraft.
C-212 are used by Chilean Air Force, Navy Air Aviation and Army Aviation Brigade. The CN-235 are used by Army and soon C-295 Persuader will arrive to Navy Aviation.

Well, for now I share these of CN-235 from Army Aviation Brigade (BAVE Brigada de Aviación del Ejército)

Just a couple of shots taken using a small point-and-shoot a few years ago at Glasgow.
First, Casa 212-400 on delivery to the Paraguay Air Force
Image
Secondly, a big surprise to see this, but it was on its way to Canada to try out the skis that would
be fitted to the 2 aircraft.

Still trying to find the shots I took of the 2 Ecuadorian Army ones….
