Perhaps a "ST" or "SR" code instead?


LD ?

LD works. Could go combo LS for Lockheed Starfighter - like the Ilmavoimat Learjet 35 (LJ) and Fouga Magister (FM). Or keep it simple - LO for Lockheed?

ST is taken: Fieseler Storch.
SR, LD, and many others are feasible.

Love the RAF ones!

Just a thought the Belgian AF was offered a stripped down and simplified version of the "G" when they bought the Mirage 5. Might have gone to other M5 users as well??? :-*

Also if the RAAF had gone with the F-104G, perhaps the earlier "C"s used in Vietnam by the USAF might have ended up in NZ? (Having read the RAAF threads I am not getting into that too deeply)
