Currently preserved at Parque del Aire with fake registration 634. From a local researcher - Currently I am doing a deep research to solve the mystery of the Peruvian Hunters. I am trying to get information about how were they re-serialled in 1960. Things show that the re-serialling of the F.52 was not in the same order as the original FAP serials, but just in a random order. For example, 630 became 145, 638 became 137, and the rest of the fleet I still don't know, except for the T.62 two seater, 681, which became 164.. I have visually inspected this aircraft, and the serial plate reads 41H-670691, which belongs to ex WT634, delivered to Peru in 1956 as FAP-638, and re-serialled in 1960 as FAP-137.
