Yesterday (5/6) was a slow day with the Norwegian F-16BM 692 flying in the morning and afternoon and 2 local F-16’s departing in the morning and returning after +/- 3 hrs. Heard the day before was better with both F-16’s and F-35’s in morning and afternoon waves.

The morning wave ist usally better (sometimes a litte only), because AVB "Moon Beam" is mainly flying in the morning. But have a look in the logs from the last months.

The new special painted F-16AM, Block-15 E-006 flew for the first time and the paint is showing a grey/black/silver head of a Falcon on both sides of the fin and lettered "F-16 half centrury". The forward fuselage is red-white-silver. It will presumably be quite short-lived and it is planned to visit some European Air Shows in 2024 - of course the RIAT where 50 years of the F-16 Fighting Falcon will be celebrated.

Due to the ongoing delivery problems with the F-35A Denmark and Secretary of Defence Troels Lund Poulsen decided to fly the six F-35A from Luke to Skrydstrup until the end of this year.
