52-7234 , 52-7248 , 52-7252 , 52-7253
These four aircraft had just a brief transfer to Rnoaf circa one month.They were returned to USAF which then sent they to French Airforce
,they were not in use in Norway,No squadron markings applied in the brief time.

Ten RF-84F were returned USAF and were stored in David monthan afb from 1970 and onwards.
Some of them were moved to Socorro,New Mexico somewhere after year 2000.
These serials were noted Socorro may.2005 , 51-17046 (FA063) , 51-17048 (FA060) , 52-8724 (FA 059) , 52-8747 (FA057)
Probably all except one were scrapped by 2006 at Socorro as far as I know.

Regarding serial 52-7325 did it go to French airforce as 33-OD instead of returning davis-monthan , USA ?
Regarding Serial 52-8734 was this an ex French Air force Thunderflash 33-DT arrived Norway in 1963 ?
