I think the block capital text from last year's aircraft looked good on the wings, this years not so much. Still gorgeous overall! :clap:

I think she turned out very well, good job to all those involved! I think "Belgian Air Force" on both slats and the tail is a bit too much though, but that's just my opinion. Overall I think she looks very good, and Im looking forward to seeing her in the air :)

I wonder if its cause it was Mitch's last public display that Duxford gave him the all clear plus there were not many civiy aircraft on the other side of airfield.

Thats looks brilliant bring on duxford :drool: & hopefully Eastbourne :rock:

The display has just had its debut at Duxford.

Easily the best F16 demo from any European nation for some years. Completely new routine.

Made all the better by no less than 5 flare dumps during differing maneuvers!
