Things of particular interest in this area:
(Press "Back" on your browser to return to this list.)

1/    There is a distinct step to the wing tip, upper and lower (almost as though the extension has been "bolted" on to the original tip) and this is heavily (flush) riveted. (Photo 6, Photo 7, Photo 9, Photo 10, Photo 16)

2/    The leading edges of the wings have a clear protective tape on them. (Visible in almost all photos on this page.)

3/    There are two static wicks on each aileron. (Photo 10, Photo 16)

4/    The wing tip fairings are bulged at the rear and have a very slight nose-down bend to them. They also have two small panels on their outboard edge. (Photo 1, Photo 9, Photo 10, Photo 17)

5/    There are twelve vortex generators outboard of the main wing fence and three inboard of it. They are attached in a straight line but not evenly spaced. Note that there is a gap in the line where the roundel is. They are composed of two surfaces angled at 90 degrees with the same shape to both faces This allows the same item to be used on either wing. (Visible in almost all photos here, but particularly Photo 5, Photo 7, Photo 9)

6/    The wing layout on the Australian Hawk is different from most others in the arrangement of the wing fences. There is one major fence about mid-span and another, smaller one between this and the wing tip. (Visible in almost all photos on this page.)

7/    There are another pair of wing fences mounted close to the wing tip, both above and below the wing, which also have the formation lights on them. (Photo 1, Photo 7, Photo 8, Photo 9, Photo 10, Photo 16, Photo 17)

8/    There is a small, unpainted stall wedge fitted to the leading edge of the wing, approximately mid way between the wing root and the main fence. (Photo 1, Photo 2, Photo 3, , Photo 4)

9/    The clearance between the flaps and the tanks is quite close. (Photo 14, Photo 15)

10/   The flaps have a "double slot" which extends their full length. (Photo 11, Photo 12, Photo 15)

11/   The flaps are attached and hinged via three large under wing fairings. (Photo 8, Photo 13, Photo 14)
