I love the angle on the F-5's, especially in the last shot.

That desert coloured F-16 looks amazing though! Do you have anymore of that one Matt?

Very nice indeed, I must get around to making a trip there one of these days.

Out of interest, are any of the F-5Es ex-Alconbury ones? Didn't they end up with the Navy, or have I got that wrong?
