de Havilland DHC-4 Caribou

The de Havilland Canada DHC-4 Caribou (known in the U.S. military as CV-2 and C-7 Caribou) is a Canadian-designed and produced specialized cargo aircraft with short takeoff and landing (STOL) capability. The Caribou was first flown in 1958 and although mainly retired from military operations, is still in use in small numbers as a rugged “bush” aircraft.

This aircraft is one of the fleet of Caribou’s operated by the Royal Australian Air Force between 1964 – 2009. The display took place at Classic Fighters 2009, at Omaka Aerodrome, Blenheim, New Zealand.
