In this paper we analyse the jet like features observed in some symbiotic systems, we present the objects in which such features were detected. One of this objects is R Aqr. In this object high collimated outflows emerging from the central region has been observed since the 1970s. We present the possible explanation for this outflows and analyse some new kinematic data of this object comparing them with previous observations.



We acknowledge the help of SPM staff during the observation run and specially to Roberto Vazquez for the introduction to MEZCAL and its observation techniques.
