    Not to highjack or deride your thread but the L-39 is more of a trainer than a fighter. And a subsonic one at the that. It's max operating mach is similar to corporate jets.

    It would still be very fun to fly though.

    Lucrum, appreciate your points, but in reality no one is going supersonic anyway in the US with a private plane. Enjoy a military trainer and have fun. There are a few places now you can go and fly "combat" missions or just for fun in planes. The only privately owned Harrier is coming back to the EAA Airventure this year. I am hoping at some point they will have F-15's and F-18's etc at EAA and allowed to have them perform full military routines. Having your body feel like it is going to explode watching this stuff is just plain fun.:D
    Any of you aviation nuts, head up to Oshkosh Wisconsin for one heck of a great show at the end of July every year. Good stuff and great people.

    Like I said, it'd still be fun to fly one.
