Your Sunday Morning Jet Noise

A Paris Jet.

You can hear the whistling of those old centrifugal-flow turbojet engines. There may be about 38 of them in the States. I've no idea how many are airworthy.

FAA Registry shows 29 currently N-registered in the US. Of those they show 19 valid, 8 expired, 1 terminated and 1 pending.

MS760 dot com has 9 for sale, all with N-registration numbers, but I didn't cross reference registration status.

I haven't seen one flying in years, but the database doesn't show any down here. We have the boys at Addison flying their Mig-15 UTI sometimes and a couple of L-39's putt around now and then.

Did a walk around of one, plus took pictures of the cockpit, when it stopped at OPF (Opa Locka, FL—busiest airport in the world, at the time). I was doing flight training there, '66/'67. Pretty cool.
