Does anybody know the serial numbers on the F-16s for 2012 Thunderbirds? They don't mark them on their planes like normal F-16s have. It can be a crap shoot guessing which aircraft they use also as they may have multiple planes marked #1, #2 etc. They are probably different planes than 2011 as it often seems the case. So far when I have done searches in the photos for 2012 Thunderbirds I was only able to find the serial # for 4 and 7.

I learned that with the Blue Angels that their BuNos (bureau numbers) changed in the course of 2011 - where I saw them 3 different times in April, July and November. For example Plane #2 was later #4 or something like that where I would see that particular aircraft BuNo wearing #2 at one show and #4 at the next - but at least Blue Angels mark their BuNos in the same spot that F-18s do. Thunderbirds are unmarked

Thank you very much

This is for 2012 and not last years numbers?

Someone else was able to ID 3 of them

#4 92-3890
#6 91-0392
#8 91-0479

Do you know if they swap around aircraft a lot like Blue Angels? because I have about 3 different #4s for Blue Angels last year. I know the year that Thunderbirds did a fly by at Daytona 500 I got them all taking off and they were using 3 D model 2 seaters for some reason.

Isn't Thunderbird #7 a D model (2 seater)?

92-3896 is a C model, but I checked Joe Baugher's site for that serial # and it showed as #7 also. Looking for Thunderbirds under Baugher's site is like trying to find a needle in a haystack and he only is able to update Thunderbirds info when people send him the info he only has records of serial numbers of aircraft but not how they are painted.
