Boston/Havoc in service in Brazil

Last revised August 5, 2000


In 1944-45, the Forca Aerea Brasileira received 30 ex-USAAF Havocs (A-20G to A-20K). These aircraft remained in service well into the 1950s before they were finally withdrawn. At least one is on display at the Museu Aeroespacial at Campo dos Afonsos.
