Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose, Costa Rica. This was the POW transfer site of both sides in World War III at the end of the war.

Two F-20 Tigersharks on a test flight over California in 1982. The F-20 became the once-unheralded "miniature monster" of the Third World War, a single-engined light fighter made both by Northrop in California and by AIDC in Taiwan that, while lacking some the fighter-bomber capabilities of the F-16 and F/A-18, was a very capable fighter with a powerful radar and electronics suite. Once derisively called "The Midget" by the Russians, F-20 squadrons, many of whom soon painted 'TMKR' on their aircraft in response (this being a shortened version of the statement 'This Midget Kills Russians') gained a mystique all their own for the speed and agility of their small fighters, acting as both fighter killers as well as often being used for tactical air support in both dropping bombs and strafing runs as well as killing helicopters, the latter a job the F-20 often excelled at. Even with wide production allowing for the F-16, F/A-18 and F-15E taking over many duties by the end of the war, some nine squadrons still flew the F-20A Tigershark at the Armistice, and they remain in use in several air forces to this day.
