Maybe a stupid question, but: What do they test on testbeds? I recall recently hearing we still have a test F16 but what do they test?

What a lot of flights by the G-275 in Holland the last week. You see him everywhere daily... Is that normal???
In my opinion, we need more C1-30's, like the Belgiums!
We have two but the other one (G-273) is out for painting. The RNLAF has ordered 2 more so in a while we'll have 4

Still strange that it says US Air Force F-16A under the canopy. Is this an old picture? Do we have any F-16AM's that used to be USAF F-16As? In that case it could be that this is a picture from just after we got it, cause I can't imagine they wouldn't spraypaint over that J-008's USAF serial is on ...

The angle of the front plane isn't an indication that he is being pushed down. Upside-down flight means extra nose down (in upside-down that's nose up :P) attitude because the wings are asymmetrical (top and bottom).

Both great news, but will the Mirage perform only on the 20th, and the F18 only on the 21st? Would love to see them both, maybe I'll have to go both days then :P
