Lockheed F-16 Fighting Falcon (86-0246) - A rather stunning surprise for us Dallas/Fort Worth area enthusiasts. SPAD 91, an F-16C (SN 86-0246), arrived at it's home base of NAS JRB Fort Worth in a fresh coat of paint to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the 457th Fighter Squadron "Spads." The tail sports the entire aircraft lineage of the 457th while the S/N sports a very Fort Worth western-style font. A welcome sight in a world where there is less and less color on military aircraft.

Epic catch of this brand new special point scheme! I've seen this image or one just like it by another photographer on Airliners.net as well.
