Still one of my all-time favorite airplanes. I've got a R/C EDF kit that I'm gonna get off my ass any day now and start on......

Come to think of it, isn't that a USAF marking under the cockpit?

The Navy leased some Kifir's for a couple years for DACT. The used to fly out of Oceana back when I was doing the Tomcat thing. Neat plane, but basically a Mirage copy. IAI's come a long way since then.

See the first post on this thread - subtract the winglets - I think that's what you got.

Used to watch the A3J Vigilante (nuclear bomber version) fly off the Forrestal back in '61-'62.

The nose wheel is WAAAAY back on the fuselage, and they'd park them with all that nose over the side, and the crew would walk the top of the fuselage back to the wing. Ballsey!

By the way, if you want to see one of these rare Vigilantes in the metal, they have one here at NAS Fallon on static display just behind the chapel. In fact, they're getting a pretty good collection of static displays now, including lotsa Migs.
