Seriously? I thought that development of the different tapes in both the EPAF MLU as the USAF CCIP chain happened in parrallel? At least from tape 4.2 onwards thats the case as far as I know.
Currently majority of both European MLU's as American CCIP's are equipped with the 5.2 tape which started to be incorporated from 2009 onwards. Tape 6.1 is being tested on different airframes starting in 2011 with in service date scheduled for somewhere in the latter part of 2012.

I can't update on her situation, but I haven't seen her near Kjeller AB lately at least. MLU/Maintenance only here, so a looong shot anyways.

She's had some interesting stuff under her wings seen with a Norweggies perspective, so I am actively searching for good shots of her. Doing an 1/48 tamiya block 25/32 dated back with mods to be as similar as possible to an RNoAF MLU.

The SBD shot was great, was that originally from a blog from that assistant Crew chief on her?

This one also appeared:

Unsure if she has the HTS on the port side here - doesn't seem to be starboard at least.

Hard to get any info out of Edwards...

... a good thing of course ,)

Good chance she'll end her days there I reckon, F-16 ops are to wind down in the not-so-distant future here in the high north.
