Planes

F-16 Fighting Falcon

In the old days, each squadron had its own planes. For 31, the tail was marked by the 10 Tactical Wing insignia along with the 31 Tiger head. Later on, Defence experimented with new tailcodes (BL foor KeeBee and FS for Florennes) and a low visible Tiger insignia, but that didn't remain long. In present time, during special occasions such as Nato Tigermeets, the planes flown by 31 pilots sometimes get a small temporary banner on the tail.

F-104 Starfighter

On March 9 of 1964 the pilots began their conversion from F-84F 'Thunderstreak' to F-104G 'Starfighter' which was with great success. 31 Tiger pilot "Aerts Fran├žois" flew The Last Starfighter (FX-99) to Storage at Coxyde on September 26 of 1983.

F-84F Thunderstreak

In 1956 the F-84G 'Thunderjet' was replaced by this F-84F 'Thunderstreak'. The Tiger marks are visible on the tail rudder and intake in front.
