Lust Object of the Month
The "front office," in very nice shape, with everything you need readily at hand.
I've always been partial to tigers, and to aircraft painted in Tiger schemes. These aircraft are the Sasol Tigers team.
A pair of Delfins showing two different placements of the tanks. The R model, the upper aircraft, could also carry underwing tanks (although this one doesn't).
Jets are fine, but usually not on my personal Radar. However, I recently came to appreciate this compact jet trainer first built by the Czechoslovakians in 1960. Simple, rugged and possessing good all-around performance, the "Delfin" ("Dolphin", of course), was widely utilized to prepare pilots transitioning into MiGs.
The Delfin is a nice flying aircraft with basic systems (for a jet), but is relatively easy to maintain, operate and purchase. But the hourly operating costs (especially with high fuel prices) can be a bit daunting. But if you're looking for a jet that requires very little attention and is simple and satisfying to fly--and aerobatic, to boot--the L-29 is a good choice.
The LOOTM for July is the Aero Vodochody L-29 "Delfin" Enjoy!
