Fighting Falcon F-16 RNLAF is a T-shirt with the silhouette of a F-16 over the roundel of the Royal Netherlands AirForce. As an extra i have designed a Falcon illustration and made it “shine through”the silhouette of the F-16. This makes the roundel with the orange heart more visible and gives some extra vibe to the shirt.
The General Dynamics F-16 is since 1979 part of The Netherlands Air Force (in Dutch “Koninklijke Luchtmacht”(KLu)) and is for 40 years the backbone of the offence en defense. It replaced the F-104 and NF-5 and the new F-35 Lightning II is ready to enter service and replace this formidable workhorse.
The RNLAF has F-16 Vipers stationed at Leeuwarden Airforce Base, also called “Figtertown Leeuwarden” because its the base where Frisian Flag(The red Flag variant in Europe) exercises are held yearly plus the FWIT (Fighter Weapon Instructor Training) is held for European F-16 squadrons, and Volkel Airforce Base. In the past there where also squadrons stationed at Eindhoven AFB, Twenthe Airforce Base and Gilze-Rijen Airforce base. For 300 hour inspection the F-16 Fighting Falcon will be flown to Woensdrecht Afb.
Furthermore 10 F-16s are used for training new pilots and these are stationed in the USA.
In total the KLu RNLAF had ordered 213 F-16’s. Now there about 70 in active service. A lot are sold to Chili and Jordania.
