This is a Dornier Alpha jet that showed up on the ramp on Friday. It's absolutely tiny - I'm taller than the wings are. It's pretty cool looking though.

It's owned by a Quebec-based company that offers combat support services to our armed forces (the site doesn't work in Firefox, I had to use IE)

In my video I say "old-school avionics", which is only partially correct. The main cockpit instrumentation is old, but the owner operates 8 of these jets to help teach electronic warfare to our troops, so I'm guessing it has some pretty sophisticated stuff on board too, probably out of sight of a casual passerby like myself. My bad.
