U.S. Sponsored Corps d’Aviation d’Haiti finally Fizzles

What you are looking at is an old Military airplane from Corps d'Aviation d'Haiti.

In 1943 Corps d'Aviation d'Haiti was established with an air base at the Haitian Air Force field. The U.S. sent training aircraft F-51D Mustangs and F-48D-40s.

Fighter aircraft was updated as necessary, but Presidents Estime and Magloire took advantage of the air power the U.S. gave it and used it during coup d'etats.

The U.S. suspended use of its aircraft during certain of these periods. In 1994 the Corps d'Aviation d'Haiti was dissolved when the UN arrived.
