(Manufacturer's no. 343 and 344)
The RNZAF requipped No. 14 Squadron at Ohakea with 10 British Aircraft Corporation Strikemaster aircraft in 1972 as the replacement for the De Havilland Vampires which were withdrawn from service that year. A further six Strikemasters were introduced into service in 1976. The Strikemaster was used as a jet conversion training aircraft for pilots progressing through to the Skyhawks of No. 75 Squadron. From 1976, however, all pilots completed training on this aircraft type regardless of later employment. Strikemaster aircraft were withdrawn from service in 1992 when they were replaced by the Aermacchi MB339.
NZ6373 is currently on display in No. 3 Hangar at Wigram, and NZ6374 is on loan to Wanaka Warbirds and Wheels attraction at Wanaka Airport.
