USAF Vipers!

After so many (oh so beautiful) Starfighter updates we thought it was time for a change of pace. This week we’re adding some USAF Vipers to our site. Enjoy! (On our Facebook page we’ve reported on ItAF Vipers to be added in the near future, follow us to get the latest updates!)

Luftwaffe JaBoG 32 and JaBoG 34 Starfighters

This week we turn to our German neighbours for the addition of two F-104G Starfighters. First up is s/n 20+62 with awesome Bavarian-style blue-white tail adorned with the coat-of-arms’ lion. Secondly is the grey-yellow-blue 22+55 with commemorative paint scheme, for the last flight of the Starfighter in JaBoG 34. Enjoy!

Chilean Navy and UAE Air Force PC-7 added

We’ve added two new PC-7’s to our site. First up is the Chilean trainer with s/n 211. The Pilatus is still in active service with the Chilean Navy today. The second one is the United Arab Air Force’s 917. Although seven are in active service today with the UAEAF, it’s going to be outnumbered by the newer PC-21 for which deliveries started 2010.
