CF-GQS • OB-???? • FAP-518



CF-GQS Delivered 03-Mar-1951.Operator currently unknown. Possibly Babb & Co

OB-???? Possibly used civil registration for delivery flight. For Ministere de Aero del Peru.

FAP-518 Possibly delivered as such to Fuerza Aereo Peru / Peruvian Air Force. With effect from 16-Mar-1951 (See note below).

FAP-318 Fuerza Aereo Peru / Peruvian Air Force. With effect from 1960. (See note below).

Note: In 1960 the Peruvian Air Force undertook an extensive re-numbering process and a USAF-type two-digit prefix came in use for the year of procurement, e.g. 64-5?? for a Transport aircraft, but this prefix does not appear to have been used on aircraft when the later Beavers were delivered as photographs show. There is an indication that Beavers were later re-designated as a miscellaneous type and renumbered in the 300 range. It is possible therefore that this aircraft was initially serialled 51-518 and then 51-318, although only carried the numerical last three of the numerical serial
