Nice shot! Is he just starting out, or done with his test flight?

A bunch of nice shots of this rare beauty, thanks for sharing! Would you happen to know the reason for the "Experimental" marking below the canopy?

Nat Sam: Eskild Amdal flew F16 in the Norwegian air force, ha was also a test pilot in the Norwegian air force and, he was after my understanding a key person in the Norwegian F35 programme. Eskild Amdal is now working for Airbus as a test pilot but fly a lot of different veteran planes in air shows around Europe, they say he have flown over 100 different Aircrafts, and is the first choice to fly this old Norwegian Canadair CF104D, This particular aircraft have been displayed in airshows in Norway, Denmark and finally Holland last year, the aircraft is temporarily grounded because of the rocket pack in the ejector seat timed out 20 year old this year, the foundation running the plane are looking for findings for a replacement rocket pack after my understandings. :-)

Louis Cinca: I don't know why the "Experimental" marking, but i have noticed that most of the private registered military type of aircraft in Norway has the same marking.

"Experimental" is somewhat binary to "commercial". All home built are marker so and this is an example of a military aircraft in private service marked as such
