oldman45 -> OT New airplane at NAS (2/14/2013 2:04:44 PM)

The last couple of days there has been a jet flying around NAS.

Can't get a good look at it but here is a description.

Small frame, looks about the size of an A-4

Delta wing, plane almost looks like a Delta Dart or Dagger

It has a single tail but can't tell anything about the ailerons.

Any guesses?

The F 106 only had a stabilizer at the rear... that's a real distinctive feature...

Maybe an F-21 Kfir? (An Israelis built plane that has in the past been used by Navy agressor squadrons).

These planes are currently flown by a contractor, Airborne Tactical Advantage Company, which provides threat simulations for the Navy.

Wow. Neat find. Didn't know we used the Kfir in aggressor training...

In the 80's Israel offerred the Navy a "offer they couldn't refuse" deal. A free lease on a bunch. Just pay for maintainance. [:)]

I think that might be the plane. Hoping the weather clears and I can get a good look at it. Thanks!




Terminus -> RE: OT New airplane at NAS (2/14/2013 5:07:26 PM)

I'm surprised they're still flying...




Paladin1dcs -> RE: OT New airplane at NAS (2/14/2013 11:09:20 PM)

I've actually seen Kfir's at Oceana NAS as well back in the 80's and early 90's. There were two of them working with a pair of Tomcats right over my Aunt's subdivision. I got to watch the whole thing. [&o]
