nad the plane is an IMPA Tu-Sa https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IMPA_Tu-Sa

"In service, the aircraft demonstrated a number of serious and fundamental design flaws that led to a series of accidents and pilots joking that Tu-Sa stood for Todo Un Sarcófago Aéreo ("Altogether an aerial coffin"). "

OH if correct

"Interest waned when the Mods saw it as an attempt to get round the 24 hour rule..................... "

I disagree.

However, you have found the IMPA Tu-SA - well done.

Asturias has declared OH.

Weapons stations look Saab-ish.

Appears a canard delta.

The challenge has a pronounced “knuckle” in the fin.



Like MiG -35???
But probably more aircraft like that.
