Looks like FAB-522 (Bolivian Air Force) although FAB-522 is reported as Cavalier TF-51D, serial 67-14865, with dual-control cockpit and enlarged 'Temco'-style hood. The picture shows a regular hood, and the style of the letter '2' does not match other TF-51's that went to Bolivia around 1967/1968 (FAB-520, FAB-521) - but this does not eliminate the aforementioned possibility. Any other clues ?

Hey is this the FAB 522? I dont think so because the canopy indicates a single seat 51 and its supposed to be a TF but the side titles appear to be FAB 522!!!

WHO #132 appears to be ex FAB522 67-14865, which was to have gone to Canada as C-GXUP, but remained in Bolivia. I believe it ended up at World Jet in Ft. Lauderdale, where the above photo was taken.

Just a wild guess, but is it being restored back to a single seat plane?? Looks like it to me.

Since no new information has come in as of 6th Dec, 2001, this case will be closed (for now).

The photo was taken at Ft. Lauderdale, FL in 1996.
Case Closed!
