Eastbourne International Airshow 2017


BELGIAN F-16 The Lockheed-Martin F-16 MLU registered FA-123 of the Belgian Air Force Solo Display Team is nicknamed the “Blizzard”. Delivered for the first time in 1979, the Fighting Falcon has been in service for more than 35 years in the Belgian Air Force. Its examples are among the oldest still in service, but thanks to major upgrades they remain very capable fighters. 20 EASTBOURNE INTERNATIONAL aIR S HOW 2017

It was originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force. Designed as a lightweight fighter optimised for daytime dog fighting and ground attack, it evolved into a successful multi-role aircraft over the years. They have taken part in coalition air operations over the Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, as well as the Baltic Air Policing initiative. The colour scheme you can see in the 2017 display today has been designed to show distinctive, contrasting colours in flight on the upper and lower side of the aircraft. The scheme was designed in different layers on which both the vortices and smoke are meant to superimpose and compliment the design.
