Anyone know how many F-16s have been produced up to today? I know I saw something about the 4500th being built in 2010 and going to Morocco but can't find anything since then. What about the oldest flying F-16 in USAF fleet?

Fleet status report might be good - Over 4500? :

Greets,

So since 2010 - when the total stood at 4500 - LM has produced another 97 in 7 years???
LM has kept the line going making roughly 14 per year?? That seems kind of low

Yes, it is low, but there is value in keeping a line going as long as possible just in case something happens that F-16 production is needed quickly. However the plant in the last 7 years has also been converting production over to the F-35.

Jon,
I understand what your saying. I guess that i'm surprised with all the apparent interest (still!) in the Viper that the number wasn't higher.
Don't get me wrong i would love to see the total go above 5000 - although some Phantom phans may get a bit ticked off!!! :devil:
