Airspeed Oxford I
Twin-engine communications- and medevac aircraft
Six Airspeed/Plymouth build Oxford C.1 communications aircraft were acquired by the Belgian Government in exile from the British Air Ministry during the Second World War for use in Belgian Congo. From July 1944 onwards these aircraft were assembled at Leopoldstad/-ville and taken on charge by the Openbare Weermacht/Force Publique to replace the ageing Fokker F.VII aircraft. One aircraft (A-25) was specifically equipped for crop spraying while another one (A-26) was equipped with camera for geographical duties. By 1955 all Force Publique/Openbare Weermacht Oxfords were replace by De Havilland Doves.
The following RAF serials of these aircraft are known but without a tie-up to the actual machines:
LX528, NM447, NM450, NM464, NM466 and NM467
