F-16.net has an extensive <a href="f-16_photos.html">photo library</a> which we are continuously expanding. Currently we have photographs of 84% of all <a href="f-16_photos_album05.html">Belgian Air Force F-16s</a>, and we are looking for the 26 missing aircraft.

Airframes of which we do not have a picture yet:
    A-models: FA-07, FA-08, FA-11, FA-12, FA-13, FA-15, FA-22, FA-23, FA-24, FA-26, FA-29, FA-33, FA-35, FA-41, FA-52, FA-54, FA-59, FA-63, FA-79, FA-85, FA-105, FA-113

    B-models: FB-06, FB-11, FB-13, FB-16
If you have pictures of one of the following airframes, those are welcome as well (due to low quality of the picture we have or because we only have one picture of those airframes):
    FA-02, FA-03, FA-05, FA-09, FA-20, FA-38, FA-40, FA-44, FB-03, FB-04
So all those photographers amongst you, if you have an F-16 photo collection and discover airframes of which we don't have a picture yet, please don't hesitate to contact me at photos@f-16.net

Bjorn,

Both FA-03 as FB-03 are parked at Saffraanberg to train technicians according to my information. I have to go there in March anyway for the open school day and I'll take my camera with me. :D

About FA-113, it was destroyed only shorlty after coming into service in a landing accident in Czechoslovakia or something like that. I think there exist pictures of the recovery team and I'll look around. :shock:

Hi Tony,

Yes, I know about the fact that they are at Saffraanberg. We also have pictures of them in the hangar there. But they are quite dark these pics. I once saw a picture of FA-03 displayed outside and the photo was taken sideways. Magnificent picture, but I don't remember any more where I spotted it.

So we're just asking for a better picture of those airframes.

FA-113 crashed in Czechia yes, but it wasn't just after it was delivered. We already received a picture of that one from a time when it was still operational.

The FA-113 is now on static display in Beauvechain since it crashed in Hradec Kralov (Czechia) on 12 may 1995, the A/C was first flying for 23 sqn.

You can find a picture taken on 16 february 2005 at: http://www.rma.ac.be/RMAdotNet/binaries ... H&ID=23046

There's also a picture of it after the crash, when it was being repaired for the static display: http://members.fortunecity.com/gvanroy1 ... f16-03.jpg

Hi Dirk, you've got to read the message with each picture correctly. I didn't say that I took the picture, I said its from my collection.

I don't know who took the picture, but one thing I'm sure off, I have all the others F-16's from the Belgium AF.

Have a nice day,
Ronny.
