Friday Foxer #147

To fully defox the following geofoxer, identify all eleven locations plus the theme that links them.

  1. K. might be the wreck of the barque Trinculo (30th May 1879)
    Golden Beach, Victoria, Australia
    but someone would have to confirm it.

    ETA: Trinculo is Alonso’s jester

  2. J. is the Australian National Aviation Museum of Melbourne
    The first one is a missile, but I can’t find much about it
    Right behind is a French Mirage IIIO
    The yellow plane in the back is a CAC CA-28 Ceres
