Default unusual aircraft

While up at Lake Isabella California (about 50 miles north of Edwards AFB) this past weekend I saw a very unusual small jet flying north. I immediately thought of grabbing my camera but it was too far away

A couple of hours later I was down at the lake fishing and photographing the landscape when I saw the same small jet flying south. This time I was close enough to grab my camera and get one quick shot.

I'm guessing it's military, possibly a training jet flying out of Edwards AFB. There's always fighter jets flying through the area.

It was very quiet with a V tail wing. Notice how small the engines are.

It looks like a Belgium Fouga Magister which is a jet trainer. You can see the double canopy.

It never ceases to amaze me how smart this group of photogs can be.

Thanks Bynx.
