What Kind Of Aircraft Is This*****

Wed Feb 05, 2003 1:26 am

Coming home last night from a Civil Air Patrol Meeting, I saw the most peculiar aircraft. I t was like one I had never seen before. It was after dark so I couldn't see it clearly. Also, it was parked behind other aircraft so i couldn't see it entirely.

Description:
Jet (1950's or 1960's maybe)
V-Tail
Exhaust openings along the side of the aircraft behind the wing

That was really all I could see.
If any of you may have the slightest idea what kind of aircarft it was, please put up a post. A picture would also be nice!

Thanks so much!

It had tandem seating I think so that might classify it as a jet trainer..maybe

Super Fouga Magister perhaps?

As used by the French national aerobatic team.

Backfire and Areopagus: Those pictures look extremely similar to the plane I saw last night. Thanks so much. Another mystery solved by the wonderful members of airliners.net. THanks again!  Smile

Sounds like a Fouga Magister to me. Sat inside one of the Irish Army Air Corps ones at Balnonnel in 1977.

Funnily enough, in the early design phase of the Comet airliner, a "V" tail was considered but rejected (in fact a no tail version was also considered).

The time I found it in the base... you have been too fast for me.
Here are more of the beautiful Fouga.
