The T-38 with RA on the vertical stab is from Randolph AFB in San Antonio (about 2 miles from me) and if memory serves, the black t-38 is from Beale AFB in CA. These T-38's were used by the SR-71 pilots to get stick time.

We had a couple of T-38's or F-5's fly into our 148th Fighter Wing , here in Duluth, today. Only got to see the underside, , so how does one tell the difference? From 3-view, they look the same. BTW, they appeared to be black, a little to high to see any markings. Currently the 148th Fighter Wing are flying the F-16C's. Nice to see some new blood in the sky.

the later F-5's also had i bit bigger inlets ...but you might not see that from the ground ...the rails is the best way to tell.

Believe him when he says he flies Zippy's. He brought to Vegas last year a cardboard box that would hold a case of beer but it was full of Zippy's!

Don't think there are any Air Force F5's still flying. If it looks like a t-38 it probably is. I think the inlet is a little different on the newer glass cockpit variant. They may all be converted to glass.
