Dornier Do27J-1

Single engine communications- and general purpose aircraft


In 1960, twelve Dornier Do 27J-1 single engine aircraft were acquired by the Light Aviation branch of the Belgian Army as a 6 seat communications base hack and to provide a platform for free fall parachute training. On 25 March 1977 the Light Aviation made the last Dornier Do 27 flight. Many of these aircraft then started a second life abroad.
