F-16AM, Belgian AF
There are plenty of F-16s flying around in Europe, so at almost all military airshows, you can expect one of them in the flying program. Two F-16 teams could be watched at the Leuchars air show: the Dutch team and the Belgians. The above spectacular picture shows F-16AM FA104 of the Belgian Air Force while performing in the Scottish air space.
