Naval Air Station Jacksonville is where the B737 crashed into the river lastnight and when I went there in GMaps I saw what looks like two Cheetahs and a hunter parked on the apron.

Could be the F-21A Kfir for aggressor training?

F-21 Kfir as operated by ATAC. Upper wing camo distinctive. ATAC also operates Hunters.

Definitely ATAC Kfir's though technically they are C2's. F-21's are the C1's leased to the USN/USMC in the 80's.

ATAC's Hunter is there as well.

Incidentally F-21 is the designation that Lockheed Martin is using for the next gen F-16 for India.

Astounding the longevity of the F-16. What was meant to be a very simple lightweight fighter at inception will most probably end up being the most successful modern era jet fighter.....by far. Can't put a good thing down :D
