    Hi all
    The lovely Hawker Hind Bi plane, a light bomber from a family of aircraft the RAF nearly faced Germany with served properly with the Royal Afghan Air Force until as late as 1956.
    I'm sure they had limited demands but it's a really late date, does anybody know of Bi planes in service even more recently?

    I think Mexico was still operating Stearman trainers at BAM Zapopan, Jalisco up until a few years ago...

    And don't forget the An-2. There's still many of them around...
