The Northrop F-5 is a family of supersonic light fighter aircraft initially designed as a privately funded project in the late 1950s by Northrop Corporation. There are two main models, the original F-5A and F-5B Freedom Fighter variants. The design team wrapped a small, highly aerodynamic fighter around two compact and high-thrust General Electric J85 engines, focusing on performance and a low cost of maintenance. Smaller and simpler than contemporaries such as the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II, the F-5 cost less to procure and operate, making it a popular export aircraft. Though primarily designed for a day air superiority role, the aircraft is also a capable ground-attack platform. The F-5A entered service in the early 1960s. During the Cold War, over 800 were produced through 1972 for U.S. allies.
In 1986 nine aircraft were acquired by Norway, and in 1991 another ten (NF-5A/B) by the Netherlands. During the period 1967-1968 the type was used by the third Greek aerobatic flight, “New Greek Flame”. The F/NF-5A were withdrawn in 2001. Single-seat fighter version of the F-5A for the (SF-5A) Spanish Air Force, built under license in Spain by CASA.
