A-4K Skyhawk



Taken at Taupo, March 31, 2001. A low pass over the airshow. Note the Captive Air Training Missile (CATM) fitted to a LAU7A launcher on the outboard rack (station 5). Only the seeker head on the missile is active. The blue colour indicates the store is 'inert'. The CATM is normally flown without fins and wings to save wear and tear. A 400 US Gallon external tank is carried on the centreline rack (station 3).
