South Arabian Jet Provost's!

During 1967 the British Goverment set about creating the South Arabian Air Force before independance, headquartered at Khormaksar. For offensive dutie's, 4 former Royal Air Force Jet Provost T.MK.4's were converted to armed T.MK.52's. Serial number 103 is seen here prior to being crated for onward delivery.

101 is seen here, low over the Southern Arabian landscape. They were destined to carry their markings for only a few weeks, since after independance, the Country was to became South Yemen, and the roundel was soon replaced.
