Northrop, the F-5 family

Through 49 issues of Le Moniteur de l'Aéronautique

The first issue of the magazine "Le Moniteur de l'Aéronautique" hit the newsstands in October 1977. In November 1981, the last issue ended 49 issues rich in aviation news and history.

The place of the Northrop F5 in the history of American fighter aircraft is too often forgotten. Although it was used in relatively small numbers by the US and its Vietnamese ally in the South East Asian conflict, it was nevertheless exported to a large number of countries. It was the birth of the T38 Talon, which for over 50 years provided many generations of American pilots with training in a supersonic trainer. The Californian manufacturer was also able to develop its F5 Tiger II version, without which Red Flag and Top Gun would not be what they are today.

Fragmentary, quasi-impressionist, this compilation does not pretend to treat the subject in an exhaustive way. It simply has the value of a snapshot that fixes a certain vision.
The way things were seen more than forty years ago.
