Northrop (CASA) SRF-5A Freedom Fighter: Without a shadow of a doubt.

Manises (Valencia), summer 1992.

The very busy platform of my beloved Manises AB. In the background the Mirage IIIEEs in their twilight service year; an almost brand new Ala 12 Hornet; some Police and public service helicopters and a Canadair CL-215 -more than ready for the “fire season”. Quite obsolete by then, this SRF-5 “Bicicleta” (“Bike”) was used as target tug aircraft equipped with the dramatic looking dart target.

I love this pic.
