Does anyone know if these repaints are being done during phase maintenance, a TCTO job, or as jets become available to do it?

My understanding is that it is done as part of routine maintenance. Otherwise they would have done this in "one go" for the entire unit at once.

With the marking in the right side of the jet, the F-16 symbol, we could know that these jets are painted at Hill AFB, Utah. (For the PACAF, it was KAI who responsible to this paint. The KAI is the contractor of the MRO for the PACAF F-16s)

Sorry for this is just my suspection.
The TB got new jets and it is Have Glass.
Well, anyway they will remove it later.

It looks like 91-03X2 and among them, 362 and 392 is Block 52 which they use.

But the 392 is already in the fleet.
The 362 is in 16WPS refer to database.

I think it is possibly the 91-0362 and it got the HG5 but very soon, move to TB.

If anyone knows more details about it please tell us more

It's it! The 91-0362
This maybe will be the first jet which removed its HG5.

Nice!

As for 91-0362 joining the Thunderbirds, it could only be a temporary loan?
