One of the most enduring military aircraft designs ever introduced, Northrop Grumman Corporation's F-5 tactical fighter series has served its customers over more than four decades. The F-5's initial flight was July 31, 1963, at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif.

The F-5 is an agile, highly maneuverable, reliable supersonic fighter, combining advanced aerodynamic design, engine performance and low operating costs. More than 2,600 were built by Northrop Grumman and under co-production and licensing agreements with Canada, the Republic of China, the Republic of Korea, Spain and Switzerland.

From the F-5's first delivery in 1964 to its final one in 1989, every aircraft was delivered on schedule, at or below the contract price, and with performance, as promised. Approximately two-thirds of the original production F-5's remain operational in 26 countries, including the United States. The U.S. Navy operates the F-5 in its adversary squadrons to simulate enemy aircraft in aerial combat training exercises. The U.S. Air Force used the F-5 in a similar training role.
