Polish Air Force F-16C 'Tiger Demo Team'

Poland ordered a total of 48 F-16C fighter aircraft from Lockheed Martin in 2002 in a deal worth $3.5 billion. The first Polish F-16 took to the skies in the United States in early 2006.

The Polish F-16 Block 52 aircraft are powered by the Pratt and Whitney F-100-229 engine. The aircraft are also fitted with state of the art avionics, including the APG-68(V)9 radar which provides high-resolution ground imaging, enabling day/night all-weather, precision weapons delivery and the ALQ-211(V)4 electronic warfare suite.

Pilot, Captain Robert "BLUTO" Gałązka, was trained by crew from the Greek F-16 'ZEUS' Demo Team crews and will showcase the agility and power of the F-16C in what promises to be an exhilarating debut at the Air Tattoo.
