ANGEL 7 SPECIFICATIONS

ANGEL 7 is an L-39C, built in the Czech Republic by Aero Vodochody. The L-39 was used as a jet trainer by numerous air forces throughout Eastern Europe beginning in 1974 and continuing through today. Over 2800 L-39's were built, and almost 300 are registered to non-military owners in the United States.

TO HONOR THE BLUE ANGELS

Because it looks like the Douglas A-4J Skyhawk, the aircraft the Blues flew in the early 1980's, this Aero L-39 was painted in honor of the Blue Angels. There is no association between ANGEL 7 and the Blue Angels or the U.S. Navy.
