I thought as much, so I guessed at the variant. There are a couple others.

Also called Kittyhawk and Tomahawk for different versions.
I think that one was known as a Tomahawk in RNZAF service.
There's still at least one flying in NZ.

I'm sitting here franticaly looking up aircraft trying to do the ID thing and it hits me how damn geeky we all are.

This thread is great! Not only have I found fellow plane nerds, but it has turned me onto a whole world of aircraft that I didn't know existed.

How many times have you been trying to ID an airframe and you see another one you haven't seen before and thought, "I've got to save that one and put it up for the guys?" Every search!

Not to mention the extra 10 or so awesome websites that have been added to my favorites since I started posting in this thread.

Gotta go, that last one the Waxy put up is kicking my ass!

Yeah, hopeless geeks. I've come across all sorts of obscure ones. Your helicopter is kicking my ass.

It has the same general layout of the airframe, but no.
