Wing King's roaring tailflash

Tech. Sgt. Rick Bain attaches a freshly-painted tailflash to the 162nd Fighter Wing commander's F-16 on the flightline here Nov. 1. The panel features the unit mascot "El Tigre," a jaguar native to the Sonoran desert. The roaring "tigre" was painted by Staff Sgt. Aaron Roop, a structural maintainer, and designed by Senior Airman Jonathan Rojas, a graphic artist assigned to the wing public affairs office.
