Shhhhh!! WX, It's the new temporary replacement for the F111. Just like the helicopters, second hand. Perfectly good with a few tweaks, a new cd player and a coat of paint. Shhhh!! Dont tell the Indonesians, or the Chinese, or the Kiwi's.

Not a jet.

Piston powered (pusher prop) Piaggio P 166

A couple of later models were converted to Pratt and Whitney turboprops.
