^ Nice find.

Here's early 1990s photo of the same aircraft (serial# 7707) when it was in service with Pakistan Air Force.

I don't know why they have to paint the F-16 scheme on everything. The CCS scheme should have stayed on it as Combat commanders school has, and continues to produce some of the best pilots in the world.

Likewise, on the K-8s in service, the color scheme is Red, White and Blue, taken from the US Air Force. I'd rather have them in Green and white, or even a simple grey.

I guess during last years of its active life, # 7707 was painted in that grey colour scheme.

By the way, the F-6 did look very pretty in all-white colour scheme.

PTV in various air force related programmes on Pakistan defence day often airs old colour video footage of PAF aircraft flying in close formation that include F-16, Mirage, F-7, A-5 with an all-white F-6.

What is most beautiful other than the sun in the background is the Pakistan flag, flying proudly. Pakistan Zindabad!!
