Cessna A-37B Dragonfly, ZK-JTL

I took these photos back in 2007 at the Whenuapai RNZAF Base in Auckland.

The Cessna A-37B Dragonfly was designed as a light attack aircraft back in the 1960's and was introduced during the Vietnam War. Capable of pulling 6 g's the A-37B was also supplied the the South Vietnamese Air Force. Seen here with two under wing tanks fitted, but is capable of four under wing tanks for longer endurance.

Seen here, ZK-JTL which I believe is the only one in New Zealand.
