This is a rare Red/Black T-38. It is a Companion trainer assigned to the 9th Reconnaissance Wing of Beale AFB, California- home of the USAF's U-2 spyplane operations and once also home to the SR-71 Blackbird. The colors of the T-38 reflect what is used on the U-2s- all black with markings in red. The U-2 pilots use the T-38 as companion trainers- to maintain proficiency, flight hours, currency, etc., without having to take a U-2 out of operation service for continuation training.

Has to be one of the most beautiful aircraft designs ever - the "aeronautical hot-rod".
