Photographer's Remark

It's not often you see a jet operating off grass! This aircraft was initially operated by the Ukraine Air Force as 'white 01'. Sold on the civil marked an exported to South Africa, it was bought whilst on the sea and shipped on to Australia. Trucked to Bathurst and restored - currently based there. Registered VH-LCJ on 30 March 2007.
