Fouga CM.170 Magister

@Kissimmee Airport, Kissimmee, FL

March 2009

Part of the small collection at Warbird Adventures & Air Museum, this distinctive V-tail belongs to a Magister, a French jet trainer from the early 1950’s.  Over 900 were built and served in air forces around the world.  The Irish Air Corps operated six Fouga Magisters from 1975 to 1999, four of which equipped the Silver Swallows display team.  Nikon D300 with Tokina 11-16 mm, processed in Aperture.
