The Northrop F-5 series is one of the longest-serving fighters in the world. The Freedom Fighter was the first ‘lightweight fighter” and the first international fighter serving in air forces throughout the free world. The F-5 Tiger II is even more prolific and is still in service with USAF and US Navy aggressor squadrons. The T-38 Talon was derived from the original NF-156 design that produced the Freedom Fighter. The T-38 has trained over 70,000 USAF pilots and is still in service 60 years after its first flight. It is still used by NASA and others. This book contains dozens of very high resolution colour photos from the remarkable collection of Gerrit Kok as well as official DOD photos. It covers all the air forces that flew the F-5 series.
