It was meant as a humorous comment - I did not mean to imply that the 2 Squadrons were sent up specifically for this shoot.

Re: BAF/BLu F-16

Might it be that the BAF has updated to the latest NATO Mil spec's and the new paint job reflects these standards?
If I seem to remember - European based USAF jets in the early blocks (ie 5 and 10) had high vis warning labels.
Have to double check that - I'm not 100% certain that's correct.

Re: P-8A not as bad as some think it is

The Motley Fool articles love to play up a sensationalist title - then they back off when it comes to providing proof.
It's almost hard to imagine the P8 NOT being a better weapon - its how many years newer than the P3? (even its latest updated version)

Re: Sad news: crash Swiss Hornet

Is there any news on the status of the pilot(s)? The article makes no mention of it.

Re: 70 Ans EC3/3 Ardennes

Spectacular! The French have outdone themselves with this scheme - wouldn't it be nice if all of the M2000D were repainted in this shade of glossy green?
Like the Danish '104's used to be
