Flying in the BAC 167 Strikemaster
Pictures by Paul Jansen and Kevin Muk Hon Keong
The BAC 167 Strikemaster was the mainstay of the fighter jet training programme of several air forces in the 70s and 80s, including the Republic of Singapore Air Force and the Royal New Zealand Air Force. Paul Jansen, who flew them a while ago, has another go at the bulbous-nosed jet with its fire-breathing Rolls Royce Viper engine. His flight was with Australian Jet Adventures, based in Ballarat, Victoria, about 110 km west of Melbourne, Australia, which does joy rides. This gallery is of his flight and includes pictures from Australian Jet Adventures. The album also includes a selection of rare “vintage” pictures from Kevin Muk Hon Keong, showing Singapore air force Strikes in close formation in 1976. Mr Muk flew in the formation. Following a career in the air force, he continues his involvement in aviation by instructing in fixed and rotary wing aircraft.
