Both symbol for the 2nd Recce Meet held at Florennes airbase and to commemorate the 85th anniversary of the organising 1st Squadron, Lockheed F-16AM FA-112 was specially decorated with this very fancy looking tail.
Undisputed "Star" of this year’s event; (an oldie but what a beauty) Dassault Mirage IV 53/BZ from squadron 01/91 based at Mont de Marsan.

By far the rarest type of aircraft of the Recce Meet are the Saab Viggen of n° 1 Squadron, Swedish Air Force based at Lulea.
Istrana based AMX of 132nd squadron, Italian Air Force wore this spectacular paint scheme based on the colours of the Belgian national flag, but this must have been a coincidence.
Three Swiss Air Force Dassault Mirage IIIRS were deployed to Florennes from their home base Dubendorf. This specially decorated machine, together with an overall black counterpart were seen on the flight line at Florennes.
