Former Swiss De Havilland DH 112 Venom now in RNZAF markings
Clearly a successor to DH-100 Vampire.. :p
I read somewhere about the development of the Learjet; it was found that the wingtip tanks should be hanging slightly below the wingtips for optimum aerodynamic performance but they were centered later because it looked more appealing.. So some range was actually thrown away for cosmetic reasons! It was probably unknown when DH-112 was designed :)

Before you invite a Vampire or Venom to your airshow, consider this
