Stange what you wake up with on your mind....for me today, it was the RNZAF F-27s. They seem to live in the shadow of the C-130, P-3, etc.
The RNZAF operated 3, from 1980 until 1992. Based at Wigram as a Navigator trainer, but also doing fisheries patrols to assist #5 squadron, I am lucky enough to have flown on a couple of those (Marop) a wonderful way to spend a day.
The aircraft were all ex-Air NZ, ZK-BXB, BXC and BXD.
Records show that the 3 aircraft combined, had 149,342 total airframe hours and 185,183 cycles. Dont fully understand the airframe vs cycles math thing, but its a lot.
Refer you to this ..."Flight hours (FH) refer to the actual number of hours flown by the aircraft over a specific period from the time it lifts the wheels from the ground during take-off to the time the wheels touch the ground during landing. While Flight Cycles (FC) includes take-off and landing runs (Guzhva et al., 2018).
Anyway, thanks to the Air Force Museum photo archive.....sorry the pics are large.
