AIR FRANCE Safir pictures and repaint ?

Post by Serge » 29 Sep 2006, 11:59

Hi there,

When I was 19 years old (sigh !) in 1966/67, I was flying Air France Safir's. I would be interested in finding back pictures and, possibly, have someone commit a repaint (which I am unable to do myself, unfortunately).
According to my log book, 5 SAAB 91B have been wearing Air France colors. They were registered F-BHAG, F-BHAH, F-BHAI, F-BHAJ, F-BHAK.
I still have the Air France check list with me and figured out from it that all instruments were in US measures (fuel in US galons, air speed in MPH, admission pressure in PSI, etc...

Keep up the good work !
Serge

You can't hotlink directly to images at airliners.net

Use this link instead:

Great ! Thanks a lot. "AK" happens to be the last Safir I've ever flown !
But the picture author mentions a "D" type (in 1972) instead of ""B" (in 1967). May be it has been converted later on. I'll contact him.
Any volunteer for a repaint ?

Salut Serge,

I know one man who 's capable to repaint the AF Saab 91 "D" :
Frédéric Nadot.
You can see his excellent work for the Air France CaptainSim 727 on Avsim.com.
But I don't know where to contact him and if he will be ok to repaint this marvelous plane.

A+
Sébastien

Let me finish this one I'm doing and yes.... That would be an easy repaint to do. It would sure be nice for additional pictures however, .... I'll check airliners.net.

HOWEVER........... if someone else wants to go ahead (smile)... be my guest!

Best wishes,
Steve

This is an old post, but if you're still interested, I've been working on two Air France repaints. I still have a few odds and ends to sort out though...
Here's a couple of shots of progress so far:
