    I'm not sure what kind of support it did though. Looking at the size of the plane i guess recon?
    this is the first one i've seen. That's why I obliterated a part of the patch.

    Cheers Clete, I think I bought the Dyncorp one off this forum. The DEA one is a recent addition from BOPCop.

    Are they displaying normally for everyone as they are displaying differently on my iPhone/iPad.

    Both pics show fine for me and as expected. But I am using a 24" monitor w/a Win 10 computer so they should be showing as posted for me.

    It seems to have been a bit slow on the collecting front over the past few months, however a few patches have been picked up:

    I knew the embassy had a lot of different patches but never saw one for the air wing before let alone another one for Air for the State Department. Nice combo!

    Embassy Air is run by DynCorps providing a airline service to the State Department. Here is an article on them:

    Interesting article; almost two decades in and still an unsettled situation. The article has some good links in it as well. Thanks for posting it.
