General Dynamics F-16AM Fighting Falcon (x2) - Netherlands

The Royal Netherlands Air Force originally purchased 213 F-16A/B aircraft with the air arm being one of the four European Participating Air Forces in the programme and one of 5 countries to build the F-16 locally. The size of the fleet has slowly reduced as it's replacement, the F-35A is delivered to the RNLAF. All operational F-16s operated by the Netherlands went through the Mid-Life Update (MLU) . A Multinational Operational Test and Evaluation center for the F-16A/B Mid-Life Update was set up at Leeuwarden air base in 1997.
