Alaskan NG Wing Receives Refreshed F-16s

354th Fighter Wing Replaces 40-Year Old Aircraft with Updated 35-Year Old Aircraft

The 354th Fighter Wing accepted delivery of its first pair of F-16 Fighting Falcons from the Alabama Air National Guard. A trickle of the aircraft will make their way up to Alaska's Eielson AFB throughout the year, replacing fighters assigned to the 18th Aggressor Squadron. While the jets are 'new' to the unit up north, they're still fairly aged when stacked against the roster of 5th generation aircraft they face down as aggressors. Each year, Red Flag and Northern Edge frequently pit the F-16s against F-22s and F-35s, nemeses the older block Falcons can struggle to compete against without sufficient modernization.

Classic Aero-TV: Pure Aerial Precision - The Snowbirds at AirVenture 2016

From 2016 (YouTube Version): The Canadian Forces Snowbirds Can Best Be Described As ‘Elegant’…

EAA AirVenture 2016 was a great show and, in no small part, it was because of the participation of the 431 Air Demonstration Squadron from Canada - better known as the Canadian Forces Snowbirds. Their appearance at AirVenture was a special treat, and that’s what this video is all about. There’s something about their performances that seems to stand out as being more than a presentation of military prowess; it also seems to be a demonstration of elegance. Maybe it’s because they fly jet trainers that seem to stay closer to the crowds, closer to the ground, and easier for all to see the finesse and details of their formations.
