Thanks Peter, The colour scheme reminds of the aggressors used during Red Flag at Nellis.

Thanks Frank,

So far I'm impressed with the sharpness of this lens in comparison to the original 100-400L that I had for so long.

Aren't these independent contractors, and not RCAF?

Sounds alot like how the US Military uses Draken as an independent contrator.
