    RNoAF Northrop F-5-A and -B FreedomFighter

    As some, or all of you know, a group in Bodø managed to restore and make flyable a former RNoAF Canadair CF-104 Starfighter (#637) civilian reg. LN-SFT.
    Now, a group (members of Norwegian Spitfire Association) have got a long way and finally got the green light to get 2 (yes, two) former RNoAF Northrop F-5 FreedomFighters flyable.
    (One single seat A version and one two seated B version)
    The group has been working for å long time, and made up of former RNoAF F-5 pilots and mechanics, they have managed to make a list of possible airframes.
    This is so great, I can't wait (but have to)

    Let's hope they don't get the same problem as the F-104 in Bodø, with the Martin-Baker seat.
    No spareparts for aircrafts registered as Experimental.


    Looking forward to seeing them in the air again.

      The people behind this has been working for a long time, and sorted out a lot about parts and their papers/certification. All parts to the seat is also accounted for, as they write in Norwegian:

      Vi har tilgang til komplett dokumentasjon på valgte fly, komplett digital oversikt over gangtider på alle komponenter, komplett digitalt manualverk.

      Det er bekreftet at nødvendige ladninger til utskytningssetene er tilgjengelige.
