Temora Trip Part 4 – Kero Burners

I have a personal fondness for piston power, but there were a couple of interesting jets at the air show as well. First, of course, is the ex-VNAF, ex-VPAF Cessna A-37B Dragonfly VH-DLO.

The other jet was a rather less aggressive visitor – ex-RSAF SIAI-Marchetti S.211 trainer VH-DZJ.
