I like it too. However, if i was being fussy I'd point out that on a typical British summers day it isn't very bright and colourful to contrast with the low grey murky cloud we usually get.

The only part i don’t like is the Belgian flag on the horizontal stabilisers.

Good job we have hopefully 3 years to get a picture in the sun then. :grin:

Nice, including the subtle Belgian tail colours.

Along with the Canadian F18, two to look forward to seeing this year.

I like it, but I'm not a huge fan of the stripes, they remind me of their last display scheme - which I didn't like at all.

Didn’t say it shouldn’t. I just rather the stabilisers were carried on with the blick and silver stripes.

I am led to believe that decals will be applied to stabilisers to have the flag of the host nation on show. So if you see the jet performing in the UK it'll have the union flag on instead.

With just the slightest bit of finesse, I might have made a little less mess.

Expect air to air shots online later of the new display jet. It was up in close proximity to a Belgain C-130 around 3pm according to the tracking sites :cool:

Monday is the press day for all the BAF teams. So I'm guessing all the schedules will be released
