Now I am adding a circular-wing F-16, as modern Flying pancake: <_<

My web-site http://www.kristofmeunier.fr/f16ofil.htm about the F-16 would not be complete without an O-wing Falcon having tailplanes: <_<

This evening I added 7 pictures of F-16 including one of mine (with reduced wing, piloted missile like): <_<

When the Mirage F.1M53 lost the "sale of the century", the F-16 being the winner, the French government considered buying F-16s instead of further Mirages (F.1E or 2000) but officials argued "anyway we are the very best designers in the World, look at the Concorde triumph!" so a F-16FR was developed with a Concorde wing, and ordered in 300 copies: <_<

The one with the Concorde wing appeals... Did Dassault ever build one with canards? Like those on the Kfir?

F16/79
You are right: on my site http://www.kristofmeunier.fr/f16ofil.htm I have shown no picture of F-16/79 (and F-16CCV/AFTI), just mentioned in the text, because their shape and use is not very special (enough for my personal taste/collection), but yes, this is one more F-16 version.
I prefer dreaming crazily and here is one more, for sure refused by the design bureau boss:

The Concorde copy with canard foreplanes was maybe the Tupolev Tu-144... ;)

Of course, I do not refuse to imagine a Tupolev Falcon (thanks!): <_<

Thanks!
In case what you love is the colour more than the crazy shape, here is another sunset (in another Universe, with twin suns and a different balance, easy on 2 wheels): <_< ;D ;)
