F-5E Tiger II s/n 76-1557 was manufactured in 1976 and spent time with the Swiss Air Force as J-3032. When the Swiss began to retire their F-5s the U.S. decided to acquired 32 low-hour “E” variants that would equip Aggressor Squadrons. These F-5Es were upgraded to “N” specs and added new aircraft to VFC-111 “Sundowners”. USN VFC-111 is part of the USN Reserve’s fleet adversary program and provides air combat training to the USN and USMC. F-5N 761557 was delivered to VFC-111 in 2004 and is still flying wearing a 3-tone grey scheme.Opening canopy

The Northrop F-5 was designed as an extremely maneuverable, twin-engine supersonic fighter aircraft with a high rate of reliability at a low operating cost. It was first flown on July 30, 1959 with the first customer delivery in 1964. The last of more than 2,600 F-5’s was produced in 1989 and about two-thirds of these are still in service with 26 countries more than four decades later. The F-5 was manufactured by Northrop Grumman and under license in Canada, Taiwan, South Korea, Spain and Switzerland.
