Lovely pictures of some real rarities. My only criticism is the super-tight cropping, but that's really a case of taste.

That F-5 is a beauty.

Thanks for the comments so far chaps. It was certinely an action packed trip and this is only a faction of the cool stuff we saw..! :cool:

bigcrow wrote:Great to see the Bird Dog, is that still operational?

Yes! They're mainly used as glider tugs.

Don't think so, we didn't see any there! Only Hunters we saw were at the FACH Museum in central Santiago. But once you notice the problem with the jet you won't be able to un-see it...! :dizzy:

Superb stuff, love little gems like the Observer and Bird Dog, everyone a winner :up: :clap:

The Peruvian roundels on the Spartan and Pig though :sick: although I do like the fact they've named the trainer after a snack! :smile:
