    You can see photos of the cosmetic restoration of one of the FT-18's performed by staff and volunteers at the Patton Museum at this link to my web site.

    Hi Bri,

    Here's a Hind at Cosford Aerospace Museum. It's a composite of some of the Hinds recovered from the Kabul scrapyard. I think there were 12 originally recovered(or parts thereof) a few years back.Apparently, the Afghans flew them until the 50's.

    P.S, Don't forget the Cosford Air Show on sunday folks,it,s gonna be great!!

    Regards,Ned.
