Hi everyone,

I am studying the F16 Fighting Falcon Aircraft and I am trying to figure out what these codes mean: specifically, the F16 in the picture should be one of the Belgian F16 sold to Jordan. The digits probably refer to some US components, but I can't find any clear information online. Any idea?

Thanks a lot!

Those numbers are most likely storage markings from the boneyard. The 2nd picture is a 370-gallon wing tank and pylon assembly, not sure what the first is.

WIthout better pictures of where these numbers are found and on what equipment, your question will most likely be unanswered.
So if you have more details on where you have seen these numbers (where on the jet/equipent/stores) it will help.

Equipment like droptanks etc. have serial numbers from the manufacturer that are independant of the F-16 serials, so you will not find any correlation there.

Thanks guys, very helpful.

I share with you the link of the video where I took the screenshots.
I'm trying to identify if the aircraft's components belong to one of the Belgian F-16s used by the Royal Jordan Air Force.

There is no F-16 parts on that video. Those idiots are celebrating over disposable wing fuel tanks. So little detail on the video, those tanks could be from the first Desert storm.
