Like the dark grey F-16, looks so much better than the light grey ones.

Those KFIR aircraft and the Eglin F-16 stand out, and the F-15 shots. Great shots, that new F-16 grey scheme is just right somehow! :biggrin:

Fabulous shooting, a great position you had for the bank outs Hans, love the Buff and the new Eagle colours but those Kfirs :drool:

New scheme on the F-16 is interesting if not particularly nice. Bulking up the strike force?

Great stuff :clap:
