More on the VTX Alphajet (in french, to be translated one day)
http://www.ffaa.net/projects/alphajet/alphajet_fr.htm

The website by itself - http://www.ffaa.net - is worth a glance.

Model of Lockheed Alpha Jet VTXTS proposal found on eBay.

Seller's description:
Here is a Lockheed Proposal Model to the US Navy for a carrier based trainer based on the Dassault / Dornier Alpha Jet. Very unusual, and definitely an in-house model. The US Navy started the VTXTS advanced trainer program in 1978. I'm making my best guess that this was done and used in presentations around that time or by 1981 at the latest.

Greetings All -

A couple of images from a handout sheet for the Lockheed Alpha Jet. From the Bill Peake Collection.

Enjoy the Day! Mark
