    Thank you guys. Matt: to my deepest regret I should say that the only ugly "birds" I saw in the news was some female argentine ground personnel checking the APG-66 wiring in ours A-4Ar....really disturbing :confused:

    Back to the good:

    Thanks Gnomey.

    By the way...since we have some electronic experts here: could anybody tell me what is the purpose of that reddish thing on the tail of the chilly F-16s ?

    Great photos and thanks for sharing these CB! :)
    I'll take a guess at the reddish thing on the F-16 tail and say that its an emergency drag chute. maybe?

    My guess is that 'redish' thing is some sort of an laser-based missile detector, mainly to alert the pilot about non-radiating types (MANPADS mostly). Great photos :)

    In my born-town Split, Croatia, we have a street named after Antofagasta, Chile. Many people of Croat origin live in Chile Argentina btw.

    Well probably that is more accurate Tomo, like mudpuppy( quite a nick isnt ? ) say that was the location of the parachute in some aircraft, but that look like a avionics device.

    Certainly, we have a good old friend of the family wich is croat ( Balog) , his wife too ( Papag) , he is in the milk business ( cow milk that is :) ) several hectars of land and cows, very good zone to hunt in Cordoba.
