2022 Volkel airbase

Officially the final operational year of our KLu F16's is 2024. So there are still chances to see this legendary aircraft in Dutch service.

The J-641 was one of the very first ones I noted as a spotter in the 90's - it was one of the standard 306sq Falcons if I recall correctly. Funny detail about the J-641 is the toned down 'Brabant' tailband with small piece of Frisian tailband on the rudder - Leeuwarden AB (Frisian) has just ended their operational F16 era. Volkel airbase is the final location for the Dutch F16's.

The J-060 and J-063 were fully AIM9/AIM120/ANALQ131/Sniper-pod armed QRA aircraft.
