Wiki:

The Learjet Model 35 and Model 36 are a series of American multi-role business jets and military transport aircraft manufactured by Learjet. When used by the United States Air Force, they carry the designation C-21A.

The aircraft are powered by two Garrett TFE731-2 turbofan engines. Its cabin can be arranged for six to eight passengers. The longer-range Model 36 has a shortened passenger area to provide more space in the aft fuselage for fuel tanks.

The engines are mounted in nacelles on the sides of the aft fuselage. The wings are equipped with single-slotted flaps. The wingtip fuel tanks distinguish the design from other aircraft having similar functions.

The concept which became the LJ35 began as the Learjet 25BGF (with GF referring to "Garrett Fan"), a Learjet 25 with a then-new TFE731 turbofan engine mounted on the left side in place of the 25's General Electric CJ610 turbojet engine. This testbed aircraft first flew in May, 1971. As a result of the increased power and reduced noise of the new engine, Learjet further improved the design, and instead of being simply a variant of the 25, it became its own model, the 35.

In 1976 American professional golfer Arnold Palmer used a Learjet 36 to establish a new round-the-world class record of 22,894 miles (36990 km) completed in 57 hours 25 minutes 42 seconds.

Learjet 35s made the bulk of Escuadrón Fénix flights during the 1982 Falklands War mainly on diversion flights.

Production on the 35/36 series ceased in 1994.

As of January 2018, the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board database lists 25 fatal accidents for the 35/35A, and two for the 36/36A.


VU-35A:

In 1987, the Brazilian Air Force acquired twelve Gates Learjet 35A aircraft, six of which were configured for VIP transport (designated as VU-35A) and another six for photographic reconnaissance (designated as R-35A), which were assigned to the 1st/6th GAV .

As of 2006, three VU-35A aircraft have been reconfigured as R-35As; subsequently, these three were modernized and given the designation R-35AM.

The R-35As acquired in 1987 were decommissioned in 2020. Due to the high cost of keeping the R-35AM operational, as they are aircraft with more than 30 years of use, the Brazilian Air Force was forced to withdraw them from service, on 12/20/2021.

    @MrSilverWolf So it's easier for me to be killed by the Learjet's external tanks than to be struck by lightning. Thank you I like these curiosities :)

    Annoying MrSilverWolf fun facts!
    you can topple over a early lear by fueling one tip tank (which are the main tanks) fully without doing the other side, and the tanks are pressurized, so opening them quickly results in the fuel cap shooting off, all has a mesh fence inside the tank to prevent the fuel nozzle going to far into the tank
