Your Sunday Morning Jet Noise

The Cheetah:

By modern standards, they weren't in service for very long.

OK, you know about modern jets. I live near Sacramento Airspace, McClellan or whatever and I saw an unusual jet the other day. Triangular wings but no canards and with a conventional tail design.
Moving too high and too fast for any other identification.
Care to venture an idea as to what that might have been? I'm curious.

Easiest choices would be A-4 Skyhawk (tail is mid, slightly above the fuselage, but nowhere near a T-tail) or a MIG-21.

w3ski said...

OK, and thanks. Front of this beast was longer than either of those aircraft. Long enough body to make me expect the short front wings, but not visible.
Certainly unusual whatever it was. Going fast and to the east.

CenterPuke88 said...

Maybe an SU-9 or -15? Did you have any other ideas about it, that is relative size or number of engines?

Yeah, not too many other matching options, especially that would be flying in the US. Sure you didn't miss the canards? ATAC operates IAI Kfirs that would be flying in that area.
