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
