Beautiful bird, flew this type 43 years ago, still sparkling to look at...!

How about FIFTY-THREE years ago (Vance class 68E [last class to use letters!])? And they weren't even new then! 8+) I suspect this one is not that old... although that serial number(?) may indicate otherwise!!!

Still a sexy hot looking number. Saw these every day 52 yrs ago at Sheppard.

Started my aviation career working for sky-tel, as an egress mechanic on T38s. 1967.

Afterburner nozzles look different than I remember.

I have one T-38 entry in my USN Log Book: Feb '71. Flew with the Commander of TPS. Logged Mach 1.2. Super flight for a Bombardier/Navigator Admiral's aide!

I always found the T38 very elegant shape..

Oh, it's that old all right! Northrup came up with some real winners in that era. Like the F-17 that McDonnell Carrier-Qualified into the FA-18. If Adm Willoby had been running Navy procurement back then I suspect he would have wanted McD to give the same treatment to this one as well. He loved cost-effective tools!

I had a couple of college buddies who went Air Force. Both took flight training in Larado and both transitioned to jets in these little hot-rods. They described the transition from a Beech T-34 to this as being like stepping out of a Dedge Pickup to drive a Formula-1 car.
