Detailed Description

This is a rare chance to own a true classic fighter: An F-5A! N685TC is a beautifully-restored, well-equipped example of Northrop's versatile, lightweight supersonic fighter that's still in use in several nations around the world, and in the USA as a nimble adversary ("aggressor") aircraft.

With a  maximum speed of over 700 Knots, a maximum climb rate of over 30,000 feet per minute, and a ceiling of 51,000 feet, the F-5 is not for the faint of heart. But it is a surprisingly-simple, reliable jet that can be your ticket to the rarified word of the fighter pilot.
