North American SNJ-5:
90662	the original Argentine Navy 0462/2-A-304 was ex Bu90662. Is the aircraft outside the
	Museo de la Aviación Naval the original, or just a replacement in the same colours? The
	official MUAN website suggests it is the original one, taken into service in 1947. If so, it could not have been used by Israel and Biafra. Besides, as far as I know, all flyable
Biafran AF T-6 were taken over by the Portuguese AF in Angola.
