Aircraft Marking

In a visit to an Air Show held in Colombia in mid-June 2004, I came across this particular aircraft. It seems to be a T-41, operated by the Policía Nacional Colombiana (Colombian National Police). Its s/n is also very particular (PNC 0260-I, the "I" standing for "Instrcucción", or Instruction in English, meaning it was for training).

The roundel is a dark green ring containing a large dark-green star over a stylized bird in the colors of the Colombian flag.

Flag of the "Escuela de Cadetes de Policía General Santander" (General Santander Police Cadet School). Description of the flag: two equal horizontal stripes, top green and bottom yellow, with Coat of Arms on the middle. Official website: Dirección Escuela Nacional de Policía General Santander.

There seems to be a gold inscription in the burgundy ring around the arms, but it's far too small to be legible. The name of the school, perhaps, or its motto?
Eugene Ipavec, 22 September 2005

The inscription on the golden fringe is the name of the School, so it would be (in golden capital letters) "ESCUELA DE POLICA GENERAL SANTANDER".

Central Directorate of Criminal Police

The Colombian Police is divided into Directorates. One of the Directorates is DIJIN, or Dirección Central de Policía Judicial, Central Directorate of Criminal Police in English. DIJIN is a national directorate within the Police, with regional sections in each Police Command throughout the country.
