CASA C-212-300 France 1/72
In the 1960s, following a request from the Spanish Air Ministry, CASA projected a transport plane to replace the DC3, DC4, C-207 AZOR, and JU 52 aircraft used by the Spanish air force. The project, headed by Ricardo Valle Benitez, was to develop a versatile and simple aircraft in civil and military versions.
In France, four Series 300 aircraft were purchased for service with the Centre d’Essais en Vol (Flight Test Center). One of these aircraft, registration F-ZVMR, was sold to Dolphin Air Express, which then transferred it to the CAE Aviation under registration F-HBMP. This aircraft sports a very spectacular livery in two shades of gray. Another aircraft transferred to Boogie Performance as F-GOGN was used in the James Bond movie “The World Is Not Enough”.
