This was the first F-16 to be delivered to the Belgian Air Force and also the first F-16 that came off a European production line. In this case the SABCA factory. The aircraft was delivered to Beauvechain/Bevekom AB - home of the 1st Wing - in a wintery January of 1979. This first flight was performed by Col. Jerry Singleton (USAF) and Maj. Guy Devolder (BAF).
