This former Singapore AF Hunter still carries its 141 Sqn markings. This unit operated Hunters from 1972 until 1992 from Tengah AB. Its Singapore AF roundel was replaced by a RAF roundel. From 1957 until 1970 it was operated by the RAF as XF437, originally as a Hunter F6, later in Hunter FGA9 configuration. The aircraft was modified to become a Hunter FR74S with camera nose in 1970.

This Nord 1002 has been painted to represent a German Messerschmidt Bf108 owned by the German fighter pilot Franz Stigler and named after his wife Grit. Stigler became famous for escorting a heavily damaged B-17, which was flying on just one engine, back to England rather than shooting it down with his Me109.

This is not the original A68-769, which was a North American built P-51D. This is a Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation built CA-18 Mk 21 with serial A68-110 , delivered to the RAAF as such in 1948. It was restored to flying condition and converted to a P-51D-5-NT by North American in Dallas, Texas in 1999.

The Soviet AF colours were applied in Australia in 2007. As far as I know, there are no records of this aircraft actually having flown as such before the collapse of the Soviet Union. However, aircraft no. 332514 definitely was delivered to the Soviet AF as 64 red, so it is not unlikely that 33516 actually served as 66 red in the 1980s.

This Trojan was built for the USN, but went to the US Army in 1970, keeping its Navy BuNo. It was struck of charge only in 1983 and still flies around in its original colours.

VH-AAH crashed short of YWOL (then known as Albion Park airport) after a training exercise went wrong. The starboard prop would not unfeather after the engine was deliberately shutdown. The aircraft was not able to maintain altitude on one engine while on a regular freight flight.
