    Tornado GR4 known as Pinky in the Desert colours of operation Granby 1st gulf war.

    Belgium F16 splinter sqn.
    Its not usual to see F16 looping the Belgians come over once or twice a year but the Spang USAF were on deployment from Spangdahlem air base in Germany for 2 weeks to Lakenheath whilst the runway was re tarmacked. I had a few hints they all were looping so shot of there for the week.

    USAF F16s from Spangdahlem 1st one is only just under the sound barrier you can see the vapor forming over the wings which happens either when pulling high Gs or just before they break the sound barrier
