Firstly EMB-314 Super Tucanos from SkU 21 Malang:

Impressive collection.
I'm not older than dirt, but I do remember when it was new.

Three reasons - I am on exchange with the TNI AU so was being escorted by the Polisi Militer, there was a small public open day on and I was the only European person there so the locals were more interested in selfies with me than what I was photographing.

Cheers.
