    Here's some info Kris. It was at one time owned or leased by the Belgian carrier Sabena based at Melsbroek, perhaps the photo was taken there? It was eventually written off in 1968 whilst being operated by the Nigerian Air Force.

    Below is a pic of it at White Waltham, England. The reason i've included it is that the Fi-156 Fieseler Storch behind it is the example now at the RAF museum Cosford which I used to have the pleasure of working on some years back.

    I did find that first pic on the net; that made me identify the chopper on my foto, didn't noticed the Storch...and you ever working on that plane, makes it kind of weird....small world it is!
