Here’s another epic series of F-16 cockpit GoPro videos

The Portuguese Air Force has released some really interesting footage. Including a segment recorded during a dogfight with a Polish Mig-29.

The following videos show the F-16 jets of the Portuguese Air Force (Força Aérea Portuguesa – FAP) which operates a fleet of 25 F-16AM-15MLU and 5 F-16BM-15MLU two seater Fighting Falcons.

The first one brings you aboard a PoAF F-16AM of the Esquadra 301 during a training mission from Monte Real airbase, located to the north of Lisbon.

The following videos show an F-16 of the Esq 301 performing BFM (Basic Fighter Maneuvers) with a Polish Mig-29 Fulcrum. On Sept. 1, Portugal took over the NATO Baltic Air Policing mission from Poland. Six PoAF F-16s are currently deployed to Siauliai airbase, in Lithuania.

And here below you can watch the footage filmed during the flyby which celebrated the handover between the 35th and 36th Baltic Air Policing rotations. It shows the Portuguese F-16 flying in formation with a Polish Mig-29, a British Eurofighter Typhoon and a Canadian CF-18.
