Knowing that the RNZAF does not have any jets - which country just invaded New Zealand?

 

Any clues as to what just happened?

Nothing to be concerned about.

 

Our navy is on standby and ready to assist.

But in seriousness.

 

Look at the size of Singapore. They even come (or did) to Waiouru and Tekapo to do training. If they have live fire training in SQ, they hit a neighbor or something close. 

 

So similarly their jets are here with some nice terrain to hug and a bit of empty airspace.

There are also a few privately owned jet warbirds flying around NZ including BAC Strikemaster, Aero L29 and Aero L39. 

 

If you have the $$$ you can even go for a blast in one:

I'm sorry you have mixed up our navy with Australias. Ours is a row boat with one oar, and a guy with an air rifle!

I used to get used as a practice target by the A10 tank busters stationed at the USAF be near the farm.

Be out ploughing or whatever and they would roll over the hill to practice aiming at moving targets. I did ring once and make sure the weapons weren't live just in case the pilot sneezed and shredded my Fendt in a spray of DU rounds!





I fix stuff!

No he had it right. SG have their F15's here.

 

 

 

*edit* Should read the article. They do indeed have their F16's.
