Pilatus PC6 with ARDF equip.

Postby _frequentflyer_ » Thu Mar 12, 2020 9:41 pm

Hi all, for modelling purpose, I’m researching infos about Pilatus PC6/B1-H2 Australian Army carried ARDF equipment during Vietnam war.
I’ve collected some pics taken from various sources as showed here but unfortunately no one of those gave me a clear indication which specific s/n worked on…

Thank you in advance for your kind help,
Alex, Rome (IT

Others will know more, but going by the photos in ADF Serials, one of my guesses is -690, the first photo of it has that door or whatever it is underneath.

I'm fairly certain all the military Porters had the floor hatch, including our AAAvn ones.

They had the same configuration indeed!

This is a screenshot of a pdf document about ARDF in Australian Army. Expanding and making clearer the pic, it seems the last number could be a '0'
