I'm fairly confident that I've got both of them. I'm just waiting for Mike to dash my hopes and tell me I'm wrong.

I may have gone off down the wrong rabbit hole with my guess :worried: :lol:

I must start by apologising for wrongly replying that the bottom half was not a Hawk :$
Obviously the page flipped as I put the book on the scanner, and I scanned the Hawk 200 instead of the intended Sea Harrier :doh: :doh:
You lot know more than I do, evidently :agree:

I have been distracted by my domain being off line for several days, but that's really no excuse 8)

So, who got diamonds?
Pete (Motormouse), Keith (Dev One), Kevin Farnell, PeteP, Ben (TSR2).

Gold to Mick (woody901) for his second entry.

To those who need to know,
Manufacturer = BAe
Top = Jetstream 41
Bottom = Hawk 200

Thanks to All ;)

I was sure it was a Hawk, but I didn't think the 200 had the pitot tube as shown in the drawing. :dunno:

Happy to hear that, Ben :agree:

DaveG, there's an actual photo of it on the double page which shows the tube/probe. I've had a look at some other photos, and it looks like those with a cranked refuelling probe don't have the one on the nose, while those without that refueller do have it.

I don't think it's that straightforward, Mike. Just out of interest, how many seats does the aircraft in your photo have?

It's a single seat, Pete.

SECOND EDIT
Yes, the 2 seaters also have the little probe, but don't seem to have the cranked refueller either.
