Royal Netherlands Air Force F-16s

RNlAF F-16BM #J-065 from 306 sqn assigned to the Arizona ANG’s 162nd FW at Tucson IAP lands on December 10th, 2010 using a drag chute. Chutes are typically employed by Dutch fighters as a safety feature for short field landings and adverse weather conditions. They can reduce the needed runway length by nearly 50 percent.
