History.

The F-16 AM Fighting Falcon represents a significant chapter in the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF) history. The Netherlands was one of the original four NATO partners in the F-16 program, alongside Belgium, Denmark, and Norway. In 1979, the RNLAF received its first F-16A/B aircraft, which marked a leap in its air combat capabilities.

The F-16 AM is an upgraded version of the original F-16A, enhanced through the Mid-Life Update (MLU) programme initiated in the early 1990s. This modernisation effort included advanced avionics, improved radar systems, enhanced cockpit displays, and upgraded weapons capabilities, extending the aircraft's operational life and maintaining its competitiveness.

The Dutch F-16s have seen extensive service, participating in NATO operations, including those in the Balkans, Afghanistan, and the Middle East. They have also been involved in numerous air policing missions over Europe. The F-16 AMs are set to be gradually replaced by the F-35 Lightning II, marking the end of an era for the RNLAF but showcasing decades of successful deployment and versatility of the F-16 Fighting Falcon.
