    Fighter flight controls

    Hello everyone,


    I have 2 questions for the knowledgeable people on this forums.


    1. What was the last fighter aircraft to be designed with pure mechanical flight controls (rods/pulley etc) ?


    2. Same question but with hydraulic help involved to move the control surfaces ?


    Let's take the year of first flight to sort them out.


    If you have any source to back up your answer, that'd be greatly appreciated !


    Thank you all

    Probably the Gloster Meteor (?) and the good old 262 where the last fighters purely without powered controls. Even the T-33 was equipped with a simple hydraulic system. And until today the (almost) incompressibility of fluids moves the controls of any larger aircraft.

      Experience it with added transonic effect by flying MiG-15
