USAF F-16 Viper Demo Team unveils amazing Venom paint scheme.

The USAF F-16 Demo Team, commonly known as Viper Demo, has recently unveiled an amazing new paint scheme for their primary fighter jet. The aircraft is called “Venom” and features black snake scales across its back and up the tail.

"We have been working on something special since December 2019 for the 2020 airshow season. While it was scheduled to be completed in March, due to the covid-19 pandemic we paused production to ensure the safety of our crews, but we're now proud to introduce you to 'VENOM'. The snake scales across the body of the aircraft fit the namesake of the jet and our signature black and yellow colors feature prominently from nose to tail. We wanted to undertake this project to make a special experience for our fans across the country and to inspire patriotic Americans to serve in the Air Force. Thank you to our wingmen at Shaw Air Force Base corrosion for sharing the enthusiasm for our design and making it a reality," the Team said.

The audience immediately showed enormous appreciation on social media for this new team livery. It is really a pity that this excellent work arrives in the year of the pandemic. Unfortunately, it will have to be admired from afar as the airshows will be almost totally closed at least until the end of June due to COVID-19.

All USAF demo teams are currently practicing at their home bases and contributing to Operation America Strong in the US to honor front line workers against the pandemic.
