Just wondering if anyone knows anything more about this bomb loader that has recently arrived at NZ Warbirds at Ardmore? I did a bit of internet research and found it appears to be an MJ-1, possibly an MJ-1E. A member got in contact with a guy who has several of them and he kindly offered this one to the association. It runs on LPG and we might manage to get it going again. I'm guessing it was used by the RNZAF, possibly for Skyhawks?

The RNZAF had the SATS loader with the V4 Wisconsin engine look biger than the pix. I cant recall the model # but I used to service them when I was in SEMS Ohakea. There were 4 of them numbered BO 1 to BO 4. I usume they were sold with the A4's, handy for loading drop tanks.
