A-4K Skyhawk



Taken at Ohakea, December 13, 2001. Top of the fuselage looking aft. The rear of the port engine inlet can be seen in the foreground. Further back is the compressor bleed air exhaust duct with the anti-collision beacons located immediately behind. A cooling inlet can be seen at the base of the tail, with a cooling inlet for the rear avionics bay further back and level with the horizontal stabiliser. The aerial at the base of the tail is for ARC-182 VHF/UHF, and aerials for the ILS glideslope signal are fitted higher on the stabiliser.
