Product information

The Northrop F-5 tactical fighter was designed as an extremely maneuverable, supersonic fighter with a high rate of reliability at a low operating cost. The F-5 first flew 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 4 decades later. The F-5 was manufactured by Northrop Grumman and under license in Canada, Taiwan, South Korea, Spain and Switzerland.

Northrop F-5E Tiger II 73-0847 was c/n R.1028 and was one of 58 F-5Es sent to the South Vietnamese Air Force during the Vietnam War. The first 18 F-5Es arrived in 1972 when they were diverted from delivery to Iran. The F-5E saw minimal use by the VNAF because their more advanced technology made them difficult to maintain so the F-5As saw the action. This aircraft was based with the 23rd TFW at Tan Son Nhut Air Base in 1975 then flown to Thailand and returned to the U.S. .
