    Northrop F-5E Tiger II "Grape"
    74-1534, 527th Aggressor Sqn.,
    Alconbury AB, England 1976-1988
    The Northrop F-5 tactical fighter was designed as an extremely maneuverable, supersonic
    fighter with a high rate of reliability at a low operating cost. The F-5 first flew on July 30,
    1959 with the first customer delivery in 1964. The last of more than 2,600 F-5's was
    produced in 1989 and about two-thirds of these are still in service with 26 countries more
    than 4 decades later. The F-5 was manufactured by Northrop Grumman and under license
    in Canada, Taiwan, South Korea, Spain and Switzerland.

    Northrop F-5E Tiger II 74-1534 was delivered to the 527th Tactical Fighter Training and
    Aggressor Squadron (USAFE) at Alconbury AB, England on May 21 1976 wearing the
    �Grape' colour scheme. The 527th TFTAS was responsible for training pilots new flying
    skills or refreshing them by using the F-5E as the aggressor. The 527th TFTAS operated at
    Alconbury from May 1976 when the first aggressor sortie took place until 1988. On October
    19, 1987 74-1534 collided mid-air with an F-16 killing the F-16 pilot. The F-5E pilot
    managed to safely eject.
