The Norwegian Air Force is celebrating 100 years of military aviation in Norway this year. I'll be flying one of the Tiger Moths to an airshow in southern Norway tomorrow. The Norwegian AF test pilot, Eskil Amdal, which I'm happy to be able to call my friend, is displaying a specially-painted F-16 at all the air shows here this year. It's painted in the colours of the Norwegian flag, and it is AWESOME! This pic was taken during a test flight yesterday by another friend of mine.

thread on a Norwegian forum.
In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!
