Photos taken during 1982 at Booker aerodrome. 

The aircraft has been listed as a Mk 1, but in making it airworthy some changes have occurred, note the 6 ejectors, the long spinner 4 bladed propeller, and Mk 5 style oil cooler, and late mark canopy. The armament appears to have been removed, the ejector slots were certainly PAINTED on otherwise flat panels.

M.P.T.D.
