Luanda, Angola, 2002; Angola purchased eight Su-27S/UBs from Russia, in mid-2000, one of which was lost already on 19 November of the same year, while flown by the Ukrainian mercenary pilot Igor Valenchenko. The UNITA claimed to have shot the aircraft down by SA-14 MANPADs. The lost aircraft reportedly wore the serial '272'. It remains unknown if it was replaced by Russians or not. The Su-27UB shown here wears a pretty spectacular disruptive camo pattern in two shades of green, applied in a manner similar to that used previously on Egyptian MiG-21s, the so-called 'Mauve', or 'Nile Valley' pattern, and a shade of yellow, which is somewhere between light sand, tan, and lemon. Sadly, there is only one - and pretty poor - photo of them ever published, and the details of the camo pattern around the cockpit are probably not very precise. On that photo the serial is missing - it cannot be seen anywhere on the aircraft, and - strangely enough for FAN aircraft - no national markings can be made out either.
