Very cool.  I had to look really close at the planes.  Their lines indicate F-16 and F-18.  Strange.  Were they good?

Yeah, that's what I was thinking, but they are  KAI T-50s...

"
The T-50 was developed by KAI and Lockheed Martin and entered service with the Korean Air Force in 2005. It has a maximum speed of 1,100 mph at 10,000 feet, and a range of 1,150 miles. Armaments include 20mm guns, rockets and missiles.

Lockheed had a hand in the development, which explains the F-16-like appearance. ;)

And yes, these guys were good. A few of their formations weren't quite as tight as they might have been, but from a "show" perspective, they were more exciting to watch than the Thunderbirds or Blue Angels have been the last 3 or 4 times I've seen them. The Koreans have 8 ships and do some larger formations and use more smoke. :D

Yea the Thunderbirds and Blue Angels haven't been all that great the last few times I've seen them either.  I wonder what's gone on.

That does explain the F-16 lines.  It's very close,  minus the tail.  I had to look hard at the intakes to see that it wasn't an F-16.

Yeah.  they're pretty cool aircraft, though. I like the design of the intakes...gives it a "muscle car" (muscle plane?) feel. :D

Yea it kind of does.  It's funny though, I'm still confused looking at it.  Top down I'm thinking F-16, it's what I expect, but then those darn intakes come and ruin it for me....lol  Were you able to get a good close up look at one of them?

I only saw them in the air, so the shots posted here are the best I could get.  They seem like pretty cool aircraft.
