Royal Netherlands Air Force F-16s

RNlAF F-16A block 1 #J-216 with 306 sqn markings is seen here still with the original black radome and large Dutch roundel. The aircraft crashed March 10th, 1980 having the honour to be the first non-USAF fatal F-16 crash. The aircraft was only delivered to the RNlAF 10 days earlier. [Wim Vis collection]

    Although with TCA, it wore 306 sqn markings at the time of introduction because it was used for trials with the Orpheus reconnaissance pod.
