Largest export operator of the Wasp. 2 batches of new build airframes - 10 in 1963 and a further 8 in 1973, of which the last two were not delivered. Operated by 22 Flight at Ysterplaat which became 22 Squadron, Maritime Command in 1976. Wasps were withdrawn 1990.
Serials 87, 88, 89, 90 (reported as c/ns F.9556-F.9559 but duplicate RN Wasps XS529-XS532) and 95 (reported as c/n F.9757 but duplicates RNZN NZ3903 ?) & 96 also used. There have been problems identifying the airframes due to typos creeping into published data complicating the matter. Help sorting out the c/ns appreciated.
Serials 97 (to be ex RN XT782
) & 98 (to be ex RN XT783
) ordered but not delivered.
