Of course the F-16 would not be as effective. The F-16 is too small to be seen by the crowds on the ground. They would have only heard them. On the other hand, when the Titanium Cloud flies overhead and the folks on the ground experience an unschedluled, noisy, partial solar eclipse they will always run in fear. Fly, Fight and Win
P.S. Too bad they weren't flying F-4s. Now that would have been a noisy, smoking, awe inspiring sight!
