Hi y'all - just join the board.

No connection to the F-16 except that it's my fave aircraft for airshow display. Been to numerous shows in the US and a couple in Indonesia. Aside from Flanker, F-16 is more often than not, the best performer in the show. I've seen the West Coast demo team Viper at Lackland AFB open house last year performed a vertical climb with multiple rolls - and when it broke through the thin low cloud ceiling - the roll of the wing just sliced the cloud like a knife swirling through butter!

I am a civvy aviation enthusiast - working in supply chain/distribution space in the US for about 10 years now - but originally from Indonesia. I've seen the Indonesian Vipers, from the time when they had the really funky looking blue/gray/white Top Gun ghost-like camo, to the Blue Angels-look alike Blue Falcon scheme, to the current 'Millenium' scheme.
