i'm just thinking out loud... i know that the Black Knight pilots... besides playing a role in performing aerial stunts, they also serve and protect the nation.

but hor, if there is a sudden emergency... will the Black Knights F-16s be deployed into action? if they do, will they dog-fight in their current livery?

or are they exclude from action totally?

I heard that they are fully active pilots, and that the BKs are put together only when there is a need. I'm sure the planes get a different look as and when needed.

You are correct. The pilots are from active units and are taken out only for the aerial shows like these. Planes on the other hand, are kept dedicated.

Fighter planes usually fly in flights of 4 in the finger 4 formation with 2 two trailing plane sprotecting the "6" of the leading plane & his wingman.

As these aerobatics pilot are good, they will surely be deployed for combat duties since their flight skills are useful fordog fights.

People,

the pilots are from active units
the planes are from active units
Just for the airshow they are painted airshow BK colors

So in a case of sudden emergency....
there are pilots and aircraft on standby 24/7 on the ground which will be activated to take off; to intercept the threat
then some of you will ask, why is USA flying BARCAP and EBARCAP, etc
we are not in warzone, we are not imposing a noflyzone. So there isn't a need to keep the aircraft in the air all the time.

In the case of BK flying and a sudden emergency, BK will not be activated to go and intercept...
other planes will be activated instead.
into the details i cannot say more.
