Those are F-16 fighters that belong to the 414th Combat Training Squadron, that is Air Force's dissimilar air-to-air combat training (DACT) squadron. They operate aircrafts with non-US colours and non-US tactics.

At least the blue ones are originally ordered by Pakistan, but due to embargo in 90's they were not delivered. After a few years in Arizona sun they were taken into use in Nellis.

There is some incredible footabe of these very fighters in the new on video IMAX movie: FIGHTER PILOT: Operation Red Flag. Highly recommended.
