Here is my second Belgian Air Force Alouette II skin.
(the first, a Belgian Antartic Expedition 1965-1966 Skin can be found here)
This version includes a damage model and can be added both as a TGA or 4K DDS version, for people who like to use one or the other. The skin represents OL-A08 of the Belgian Air Force, (OTA-AE). A-08 served a long service life and could be seen in various international locations during its Belgian Air Force service life. It was finally withdrawn from active service at Butsweilerhof (Germany) sometime during the 90’s and served as instructional airframe at Butz. & Brasschaat. Its final fate is unknown
Belgium ordered a first batch of 17 Alouette II helicopters in 1957. These were soon followed by more orders spanning no less than 81 aircraft in total, using registration codes A-01 to A-81. Of these A47 to A77 were build by the Belgian aircraft manufacturer SABCA. After the introduction of the Agusta A109 in 1992 the Alouette II started to be withdrawn from frontline use, with the final Alouette II retiring on the Ninth of September 2009 (09/09/’09).
No Alouette II were crashed for the creation of this skin
