F-16 All Black Aggressor?

Recommended Posts

Just ran across an article about an F-16 Aggressor that is to be painted all black like an SR-71 or China's J-31, J-20. This will be A great addition to the otherwise repetitive Gray schemes that most of my planes tend to be. Hint Hint to the Aftermarket decal gods!.. https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/29177/new-black-and-red-aggressor-paint-job-slated-for-nellis-based-f-16-adversary-jet

There are some really cool aggressor schemes these days.   Not a huge fan of the all black look but some of the others rock.   Believe the commander of the unit (maybe of the base?) let people submit suggestions for one of the recent schemes and he picked the one he liked best.   Thought that was a nice touch.

I like the black/red combo. Looks more like an 80's (i.e. Topgun) throwback and suits the F-16 well.

Yep looks really retro. Top Gun was my first thought also.

Maybe they will be used as Mig-28s in Top Gun II (because no one’s been this close before)

It was the commander of the 57th Fighter Wing - "Blend'r" - who opened up the submissions to the public. He didn't choose the winner though, we voted for it on Facebook.  There were a few pretty awful schemes that luckily didn't make it too far.  I'm looking forward to doing a walk-around of the Digital Ghost scheme in a few weeks.

Those were the markings for the temporary 18th AS F-16, not the new Nellis one that will have full markings.   Of course, I just finished 86-295, but the Nellis one looks even better, so now I have to that one too as soon as someone does the markings.

I hope Two Bobs makes new version of those decals including full range of black aggressors.

I know Bullseye has talked about doing another F-16 Aggressor sheet. I think they are just waiting for a few more new schemes.
