It's a German company that is reworking the Sidewinder as an AGM.

Of course.... the Germans could be trying that whole, 'Hiding stuff in other countries' thing they did back in the 30's.  :o  Secretly making a come-back?  :worried:  Hitler's head is still out there somewhere.  :whistle:

What an awesome picture. We were lucky enough to have the 'Stringbag' fly over us one year when it was at the Sunderland Airshow. It was based at Newcastle Airport for the weekend the show was on.
