Excellent choice in paint and markings too.

In the early 50-ies Helio corporation developed the Courier (knows as U-10 or Super Courier) and started the development of the U-5 or Twin Courier in the early 60-ies as the CIA had immediate needs for an rugged 4-6 seat C/STOL aircraft service in south-east asia for their Air America services.

........

According to Cessna’s administration all Bulldogs were tested in the US although sources mentioned there was at least one airframe tested in Southeast Asia as one was lost in an crash  over the Laotian jungle.


Curious! I am reading Air America by Christopher Robbins, and he quotes reports of at least one Twin Courier in SE Asia. Could have been your Bulldog?
