Geocache Description:


Caixa Negra N. 2501 Noratlas 6419





Português

No inicio da década de 60, com o eclodir da luta armada nas províncias ultramarinas, a FAP foi obrigada a alterar o seu plano de aquisições, tendo sido colocado a enfase no desenvolvimento de uma força aérea táctica, com unidades operacionais e de cooperação com o exército e um comando de suporte logístico apropriado. O re-equipamento dos Transportes Aéreos Militares começou em 1960, com a aquisição de seis aviões Nord 2502-A Noratlas à companhia aérea Francesa.A partir de Setembro 1977, todos os Noratlas ainda em serviço na FAP foram declarados como excedentes e as suas funções passaram a ser desempenhadas pelos Aviocars e o par de C-130 Hércules.Esta aeronave (N. 2501 Noratlas 6419) foi bombardeada a 13 de Novembro de 1975 pela Frente de Libertação do Arquipélago da Madeira, organizadora terrorista paramilitar, cujo principal objetivo era conseguir a independência da Madeira, de Portugal Continental. A fuselagem reside acima do aeroporto na freguesia da Água de Pena no concelho de Machico.

English

In the beginning of the 60s, with the hatch of the armoured fight in the overseas provinces, the PAF was obliged to change their plane of acquisitions. The emphasis was the development of a tactic air force, with operational units and of cooperation with the army and appropriate logistics support units. The reappearing of the Military Air Transports began in the 60s, with the acquisitions of 6 Nord 2502-A Noratlas from the French air company. From September, 1977, all Noratlas still in service in the PAF were declared as surplus and their functions became to be done by the Aviocars and the pair of C-130 Hércules. This aircraft (N. 2501 Noratlas 6419) was bombed in November 13th , 1975 by the Liberation Front of the Madeira Islands, paramilitary terrorist organizer, which main objective was the independence of Madeira from Portugal. Its fuselage lies north of the airport in the parish of Água de Pena, county of Machico.
