Thank you Mtflyr! Beautiful aircraft for sure. I only know US & USSR types, but I figured it was British.

I noticed it's an ATAC jet.  ATAC operates various older jets under contract to branches of the DOD to act as threats or resources in training scenarios.  Much cheaper per flying hour than dedicating current military aircraft to those roles.  Unfortunately some have been lost in crashes.

Yes, It’s fresh out of the paint shop. There’s a few companies that have contracts with DoD around the Las Vegas area. Most are flying in the test range north of Nellis AFB as aggressor aircraft vs. ours and using a variety of British jets, L-39s and A-4 Skyhawks. I’ve worked a couple of their accidents (all non-fatals) during the past couple years.
