CL-41G

CL-41G

A little history on this aircraft.

Canadair also developed an armament training and light attack variant, the CL-41G, with an uprated engine and underwing hard points to allow the carriage of external stores (up to 4,000 lb (1814 kg) of weapons) and drop tanks.
In March 1966, the Royal Malaysian Air Force ordered 20 (serials M-22-01 to M22-11) examples of the CL-41G-5 Tebuan (which means Wasp in the Malay language) aircraft as counterinsurgency (COIN) aircraft.
The Tebuan entered service in Malaysia in 1967, serving for over 20 years, before being phased out in June 1986 and replaced by the Aermacchi MB-339A.
This aircraft will now be a testbed for a newly developed Ram Jet Engine.


Thanks again to my good friend Norm for letting me in on this one and to get to capture it so close............

Nice pre-deploy PoV Mike…though I can't picture a Snowbird being an attack aircraft.

bad ass Mike. I at fist thought this was a A-6 Intruder (for a very brief second). Awesome book if you are looking for a good millitary read "Flight of the Intruder".
As a former Navy Aviation guy, this is a steller photo!
