French Gazelle

AU0E8445.jpgChino is full of surprises.  There are many hangars and many unusual things contained in them.  A friend showed me a shot of a Jaguar T4 that was in one of them – I was disappointed to not see that myself.  As I was walking back towards the parking with a fellow shooter, we came across a hangar with a Gazelle in it.  The guy cleaning out the hangar floor invited us in.  It was a French Army Gazelle, still equipped with many electronic boxes from its military role and showing the mounting point on the side of the fuselage where HOT anti-tank missiles were once mounted.  He flies it regularly and says it has been immaculately maintained over its service life.  It certainly looks great.
