Photo Comment

This strange looking aircraft was designed in the late 1970s in response to a USAF requirement for a low cost trainer. It is evident that the design was based on a glider though in fact it was a twin jet with two Microturbo TRS-18 turbojets mounted in the fuselage. Only two were built and the project was abandoned in 1988
