    The company in question was chasing a military contract. So they went to their parts bin and got some odds and ends from another aircraft type they were building and created these two prototypes. They did not win the contract. But the other aircraft was and is a success. The contract they were chasing was for a successor of an aircraft built by this company.

    Here`s the forward half:

    Got it...

    CESSNA 526 JPATS CITATIONJET



    ...and I'll have you know that this took me the better part of a quiet 12 hour night shift to find !! I had eyeballs out on stalks by the time I went home.

    Such devotion and perseverance deserves a reward!





    But at least it kept you awake on the job, eh? Bet you found some interesting future challenges along the way, that`s how I find some of mine.

    The controls, they are in your hands now.

    I had a little bet with myself that that would be the first guess from someone....and I won !!

    No, not a Piper jet.

    Here's the front end. The back end would give it away !!

    A good nose, Brian.

    The nose that you posted, that is. The first picture ruled out a jet because of the pneumatic boots, and the absence of gear doors said prototype or developmental airframe. And when you posted the nose showing part of the test equipment boom the google search was "twin turboprop prototype", lo and behold, there was Sara(s).

    Now, back to the issue at hand, a nose gear as per usual:

    No, not a fighter. But it is a jet.

    Here`s more of the nose from a different perspective:

    Right, hope this one will twist some minds


    Speedy aircraft and very advanched for it's days. Never went into production though.... but the design was later used to design a big interceptor.
