NORTHROP F-5B FREEDOM FIGHTER

The F-5 was developed in conjunction with the T-38 Talon trainer as a private venture of the Northrop company. The U.S. Government selected it in 1962 for production as an export fighter for countries participating in the Military Assistance Program. The F-5 was built in two main versions; the F-5A was a single seat fighter while the F-5B was a two-seat trainer that was also capable of combat operations. The F-5 first flew in 1959 and was used by the U.S. Air Force to train foreign pilots starting in 1964. A total of 18 countries flew the F-5 and they were also license built in Canada and Spain.

FYI, the hangar in the background is devoted just for the museum's B-17G and the history of the 390th Bomb Group during WWII. It is really nice and has lots of stuff in addition to the B-17G - which is 44-85828, "I'll Be Around."

From Joe Baugher:

72-0441, Northrop F-5B-50-NO Freedom Fighter, (MSN N.8092) converted to GF-5B. Noted at Pima Air and Space Museum, Arizona painted as 60441



If it was painted as 60441, it looks like they have since changed it to 20441.
