A T-38 is not an F-5 :wink:
But I marvel at all those, often very exotic, photos!

Thanks for the welcome guys, happy to be able to contribute something!!

Yes I believe it was former Taiwanese, one of two camo ones on the ramp that evening, I'll dig the other one out tonight. But now I have a nagging doubt it may have been '88 not '83 so I'll check that out as well.

Nice thread, some lovely shots :D

This F-5A was at Mojave in June 1988. 66-9188 c/n N.6292 former ROCAF 1229. This F-5 was destined for the Philippine AF, but was most likely never delivered.

Then I found this F-5 website: http://home.eblcom.ch/f5enthusiast/.

Hi Dick,

According to the same source given earlier (showing the same pic) it should be the 3rd TFS (now 3rd TFG at Tainan):

Freedom Fighters were delivered in plain metallic colours. Later those of the 1st Tactical Fighter Squadron received a red nose and tail insignia, aircrafts of the 3rd Tactical Fighter Squadron a yellow/orange and of the 9th Tactical Fighter Squadron a dark blue nose and tail insignia.

Greetings,
Stefan
