Does anyone have or know of a link to pictures of the special livery F-16 "White Falcon". It is circa 1998 and supposedly was to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the F-16 in Belgian AF service. I searched the DB and came up with nothing. The only pictures I've been able to find on the net are of RC models. I also have an FS version. Did this livery actually exist in Belgian AF service? It is a striking livery that is best when viewed from the side as I don't care so much for the wings. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks Uh60FtRucker! I did a google image search and found nothing. What site did you get these from?
Quoting UH60FtRucker (Reply 1): The special paint scheme was flown in 1998 to commemorate the 25 years that the F-16 has been at Kleine Brogel AB.
I'm sure you've accurately quoted what you read but it would have been a neat trick for Kleine Brogel AB to have the F-16 in 1973 considering the first flight of the YF-16 was 2 Feb, 1974! It was actually to commemorate 20 years.
