MVSGAS, at 1min15, what are the dots and line on the canopy ?
Explosives to weaken it during ejection ? I thought the F-16 jettisoned the whole canopy.


TIA

AFAIK, to help that specific versions of the Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) know its positions. If you look at the top of the helmet at around 0:56 seconds, you can see the sensor.

Marshal them in

U.S. Air Force Airman 1st Class Juan Humenez, a unit tactical aircraft maintainer, marshals an F-16 Fighting Falcon at Misawa Air Base, Japan, March 30, 2020. Tactical aircraft maintenance specialists ensure every component of the aircraft is maintained to the standards. They ensure the aircraft are ready to fly at a moment’s notice so pilots can safely and effectively complete their mission. Even amidst current policy restrictions due to COVID-19, the 35th Fighter Wing’s mission of projecting combat air power and defending the U.S. and Japan is still moving forward.

Air superiority continues

A U.S. Air Force F-16 Fighting Falcon taxis down the runway at Misawa Air Base, Japan, March 30, 2020. In an air-to-surface role, the F-16 can fly more than 500 miles, deliver its weapons with superior accuracy, defend itself against enemy aircraft, and return to its starting point. This F-16 belongs to the 14th Fighter Squadron, assigned to Misawa AB in 1994. Their emblem is the Fighting Samurai. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class China M. Shock)
