A very rare image, as "710" is one of the 16 Shenyang F-5 & FT-5 delivered to Sudan in 1969. There are very few photos of these aircraft, and this is the only one I know of of a single-seater.
The photo dates from before 2018, and the location is unknown to me. Possibly Wadi Seidna Air Base.
Note that it appears to be undergoing maintenance. Sudanese F-5 'Fresco' have been out of service since at least the '90s. Rumor has it, however, that they may be put back into service.
Some photos of the very mysterious Sudanese MiG-23MS. These aircraft were donated by Libya in the late 1980s. Four survivors, 3 MiG-23MS and a UB were overhauled in 2016. One of them crashed some time later and was disposed of at Wadi Seidna. The other three have since simply disappeared.
