The General Dynamics / Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine supersonic multirole fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft. Over 4,600 aircraft have been built since production was approved in 1976. Although no longer being purchased by the U.S. Air Force, improved versions are being built for export customers. In 1993, General Dynamics sold its aircraft manufacturing business to the Lockheed Corporation, which in turn became part of Lockheed Martin after a 1995 merger with Martin Marietta. Primary Role: Multirole fighter, Air Superiority Fighter.
The Belgian 350 Squadron was formed in Wales as part of the RAF on November 12, 1941. During WWII the 350th flew six variants of the Supermarine Spitfire and took part in the Dieppe Raid and flew combat patrols over the beaches of Normandy wearing their D-Day paint schemes. In 1946 the 350th was no longer part of the RAF and became a Belgian Air Force squadron. F-16A FA-57 was selected to wear the special paint scheme as a 350 Squadron tribute to the 75th Anniversary of D-Day 1944.
