Curacao crowd treated to U.S. Air Force demo

Curacao, Netherlands Antilles -- A local child covers her ears as the Viper East demonstration team performs over a bay in Curacao, Netherlands Antilles. The demonstration, flown by Capt. George Clifford, an F-16 demo pilot from Shaw Air Force Base, South Carolina, was the demonstration team's first overseas demonstration, first over water and first demo in the Caribbean this show season. Viper East joined an Air Forces Southern effort to augment "Dutch Navy Days," a celebration put on every three years by the Dutch military to honor their naval heritage and partnership with the people of Curacao.
