This impressive flightline at Konya AB during exercise Anatolian Eagle in June of 2006 shows aircraft from two of the largest fleets - the US and Turkish airforces.
A total of 25 nations are operating the F-16 at the tme of writing. Of these, the United States is the only nation where more than one service operates the F-16: USAF, US Navy
, and NASA
(the latter is of course not a military service but a government agency). The 25th and latest nation to join the F-16 community was Morocco
The United States Air Force is obviously by far the biggest F-16 customer. A total of 2,256 F-16 airframes have been delivered - more than 50% of the total F-16 production. On top of that the US Navy
operate an addition 40 and 6 aircraft respectively. Completing the top five of largest F-16 Fighting Falcon fleets are Israel
(361 aircraft), Turkey
(240 aircraft, with an additional 30 F-16s on order), Egypt
(220), and the Netherlands
At the lower end there are a number of smaller operators, with typically less than 40 aircraft. Many of these smaller operators bought new aircraft, like Venezuala and Indonesia
. However, a number of these countries have also purchased at least part of their fleet from other air forces' excess inventory. For example, the Royal Jordanian Air Force is flying a number of former Belgian F-16 aircraft, while the Aeronautica Militare Italiana is leasing retired F-16A/B ADF
aircraft from the US Air Force
Even though most of the inventory has been delivered, four air forces still have aircraft on order. These include the Turkish Air Force (30), the Pakistan
Air Force (18), the Royal Moroccon Air Force (24) and the Egyptian Air Force (20).
