From a post over on ARC - the caption says:
USAF serial 83-1075. Still in USAF colours but danish property. Before entering service in danish air force it has to be modfied to danish standard and repainted.

Hi Habu2,

In 1994 and 1997 Denmark purchased a number of F-16's from US stocks as attrition replacements. Aircraft 83-1075 (E-075) was one of them.

http://www.f-16.net/f-16_serials_airframe-1405.html

The others were 80-0626 (ET-626), 82-1011 (E-011), 82-1024 (E-024), 83-1070 (E-070), 83-1074 (E-074), 83-1107 (E-107)

Help me out here my European compadres: On pages 1, 2, and 3 some of the examples are, from all outward appearances, A-models yet the ex-USAF serials have an "87" prefix, which I thought designated a C-model. Could these be "new built" A's, like the last-of-line Thai Block 15s?

Tot ziens! :wink:
Why does "monosyllabic" have 5 syllables?

A/B models were being built long after C/D production started. So yes, 'last of the line' would be accurate.
