Nice in-flight photo of three of 419 Sqn's, CF-5D 'Aggressors'. Note the two-digit 'soviet-style' nose number reflects the last-two of the aircraft serial. The closest aircraft is in the 'Faux Pas II Scheme' while the middle aircraft is in the Original 'Ghost' Scheme. The aircraft furthest from the camera, is in the 'Lizard' Scheme, so-called because the pattern was carried on the belly in a wrap camouflage, like lizards.
