    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for the French operational history of F4U-7 BuNo 133710. I know its post-French history well (Baa Baa Black Sheep, Alberta Blue) and that its BuNo was often confused for 133714 due to its N number, but I cannot find any info about its French history, even photos, besides these two:

    These were taking at delivery, and lack any squadron markings. I know there may be some info in Warbird Digest #49, July/August 2013, which I do not have. Hopefully someone here has it, or any other info.

    Thanks!
