First permanent instructional MLU airframe

January 15, 1998 (by Lieven Dewitte) - On Thursday 15 January, between 13.00-14.00 hrs, Dutch F-16A-MLU #J-015 (affectionately known as "Farmer's ex-toy") made its last flight.
A Chinook lifted the Falcon from Deelen to Schaarsbergen (LETS) to be the first F-16MLU to serve as a permanent instructional airframe.

On 13 July 1995 the #J-015 was involved in a mishap at Goose Bay. The aircraft was rammed by #J-137 which jumped the wheelblocks during engine tests.
