I believe New Zealand bought Australias Skyhawks and then we leased them back a short time later. Sometime after that, someone realised that we, (Australia), didn't have an aircraft carrier anymore, so "The Fleet Air Arm" was a bit of a joke, so they were eventually retired.

The the aging Mirages were put out to pasture, just as the first Hornets arrived, fitted "for", but not "with" all sorts of advanced...stuff...
