What year? The original delivery RoNAF Vipers had the short stabs, but they eventually got the Block 15 OCU, and were upgraded to big stabs.

I just did a search on airliners and all are from 2005, os if that's what you want, then it definitely has the big stab.

Hello Thunderbird

#683 always had the big stabs, she`s from the second batch of Vipers we bought. The Vipers from the first batch are numbered in 272-307 series and all were block 1-10.
They have all been upgraded to MLU-standards by now, but the big stabs were introduced also on the early Vipers already in late -80`es during MSIP

Let us know how things are progressing :wink:

Boman, to some extent true..

Block 10 vipers did not get the big stabs until the MLU upgrade. I crewed a bunch of both Block 10 and 15's in '94-95 and all Block 10's had the small stabs at that time. (and the pilots used to fly the block 15 really hated the block 10's :P)
