The 64th AS Gets a New Camo Scheme

By: Category: AirshowsMilitarySpecial paintUncategorized

This is the first post about Aviation Nation 2011, I really feel like this deserves its own post.

One of my surprises at Aviation Nation this year was one of the Aggressors on static display, an F-16 in a white/black/gray arctic camo. I was promptly informed by Joe Kates (Photorecon) that it was a new scheme for the squadron and this was the first plane to be painted like that, having rolled out of the paint shop only 4 days before the show. This camo pattern is already in use in Alaska by the 18th AS, and it has finally made it to Nellis.

I was also informed by Billy Ellison, a member of our forum, that the 64th is also getting the blue pattern like the one also used by the 18th AS and the 65th AS, which flies the F-15s and is also based out of Nellis.
