A total of 10 Su-25's were reportedly delivered to the Congo from Georgia and seem to based at Kinshasa if the two photo's above are anything to go on. FG500 is an SU-25K, and is seen here hangered with an ex Libyan MiG-23UB sitting behind on the 23rd July 2006.

A rather dubious serial adorns this Mi-8P Hip-C, since its actually a VIP machine with the Congolese Air Force.

This is all that is left of a few MiG-21PFM's that were supplied by Serbia. Did it ever fly?

A rather nondiscript AN-12BK (c.n.5343507) 9T-TCM AT Kisangani. Maybe its painted all white, to blend in with the multi tude of UN aircraft? More than likely, its just how it was delivered, since the Congolese seem to be happy just to slap thier serial on the side, and let it continue as it did before (Copyright Alexandr Lazarev - Spotters.net.ua)

One to make your eyes waters! A congolese Mi-26T Halo (9T-HM15) rolls along the runway at Kananga on 17th Aug, 2005.
