Wasnt the first metal aircraft without the distinctive D tail the later marks of Vampire? Though I seem to recall they still used wood in the wings...

 

And the Vixen used a baulk of wood to 'cushion' the firing of the guns.

 

Vampire night fighters used the wooden nose of the Mossie,

 

Even the Venom used a composite metal / wood construction, and the tail resembled that of the Tiger Moth.

Sweet!  A bit of a quibble, but a Spit in Euro camouflage would have been even better. :)

Nimrods look like they were taken right off the show Thunderbirds. 

What about the Victor?

The Lanc on the ground ('Just Jane') is not airworthy :(  Still, an awesome shot!

There are rumours about "Just Jane" and a particularly fast taxi run.

Well even 9 aircraft that looked like fighters are more than the RNZAF can put into the sky now - well, really  9 more of any jet aircraft than the RNZAF can put into the sky
