May 4, 2016 - One of the newer jet warbirds to grace American skies is the SIAI-Marchetti S.211. Conceived as a jet trainer, it first flew in April of 1981. Initially introduced to the Singapore Air Force (32 aircraft), Philippine Air Force (25 aircraft) and a handful of smaller orders, the aircraft wasn't well known here until an Australian broker purchased the Singapore and Philippine aircraft and started selling them in the US. To date, twelve of the aircraft have been imported - All are flying, or about to fly, today.
May 2, 2016 - Surprisingly, the number of Jet Warbirds tracked by the FAA has remained constant at 1,075 for over six months. That's not to say there haven't been changes - There are more aircraft in Draken's and Flight Research's fleet - But the good news is the Jet Warbird count is fairly steady.
