RMAF

Thanks for that info :drinks:

Looks like some of the A-4's were brought back unrefurbished from the Californian desert

Presumably for scavanging of spares to keep those frames that went into RMAF service flying ?

I believe it was involved in some kind of accident. However, its starboard prop is normal.

 

Looks like a left-hand gear fault...

M29-12, RMAF's last F-5E Tiger in the original 3 tone blue colour scheme. After been stored for almost 7 years inside No.12 Squadron's hangar at Butterworth AFB, M29-12 was transported on a low-loader to KL AFB end of last June.

Hopefully not a stupid question. What is carried under the Hawk's center pylon?

The Sidewinders carried by both Hawks are of different versions right?

 

BTW, love the shots.

Nice pics, thanks for sharing... :good:

 

I think the sidewinders are dummy one...

By the look at both Hawks, on the right launcher is certainly equipped with AIM 9 series sidewinder (a real seeker head but a dummy body) and on the left launcher is very similar to the AIS (Air Combat Instrumentation System) pod.

My understanding is the one with sharper traingular winglets is -9L version and the one with the rectangular winglets is -9J version. Maybe an expert can explain further the differences.

Right wing tip is aquisition/training AIM-9 and left wing tip is DRS made ACMI pod (re Aerotree contract).
