    AMI F-16A ADF #MM7236 from 18 gruppo is taxiing by the camera at Trapani-Birgi AB on April 24th, 2012 only a couple of days before being decommissioned. Note this airframe sported a special marking just days before and was painted over for the transfer to the US. You can still see the silhouette of the former painting with the nose not being repainted at all. [Airfighters.com photo by Sergio Bottaro]

  • MM7251
    AMI F-16A ADF #MM7251 is finally being preserved at the Museo Storico dell’Aeronautica Militare, where it was unvailed on October 27th, 2020. Kind of strange that it is painted in a standard F-16 camo scheme instead of the glossy gray Italian one. [Aviation Report photo by Michele Monteleone]
