Fighter tactic and aerobatcis included, if desired! Hop on board a former Soviet fighter-trainer jet, Aero L-39, for unforgetable and aerial views. This amazing package includes a replica of the L-39 as a momento. The Aero L-39 Z0 "Albatros" jet, tail number N160JC, was built in 1986. It's a Czech-built war bird that served with the Libyan Air Force and was involved in combat and captured by the Chad government in Africa. A U.S. businessman purchased the aircraft and sent it to the factory in the Czech Republic for inspection and repair. It then came to the U.S. and was purchased by Robert A. Lutz, who installed state-of-the-art electronics and avionics. Mr. Lutz had the "Albatros" painted in the same color scheme of the jet he flew while in the Marines in the '60s.
