I have recently read an aviation magazine comment which suggested that nine MB-339 jets from Draken International have been acquired by France's Secapem Defence Training Solutions to provide aerial threat replication for the French military. Are these the nine ex-RNZAF MB-339s we sold to Draken? I have not seen any mention of this transaction anywhere else.

Draken have had a couple of our old Macchis and two A-4Ns doing fleet support work with Secapem in France for a couple of years. Perhaps Secapem have decided to purchase the Macchis outright instead of leasing them off Draken?
Can you see a pattern emerging here? Marxist female leader gutting the RNZAF. I fear our C-130s will be deemed "clapped out" and sold off for a pittance soon.Then our military airlift will be outsourced to a third party foreign entity.
N344EM, N347EM, N348EM & N349EM are now registered to TVPX Aircraft Solutions Inc, of North Salt Lake, Utah on various dates in March and April. The rest have expired CoA's and are still registered with Draken
