An intruder in the Luke training camp! This F-16A is marked as the 'Boss Bird' of the 21 FS 'Gamblers', 56th FW, however, despite the U.S. markings the aircraft belongs to the Taiwanese Air Force, which uses it for flight training here at Luke AFB. Please note also the housing for the brake chute above the engine, U.S. versions don't have a brake chute.
132 Filo Hançer (Dagger), based at Konya transferred its F-4E Phantoms to 111 Filo at Eskisehir during 2014. The unit received subsequently F-16Cs Block 30s. This Viper is taxying to the runway of its homebase to participate in a Combined Air Operation (COMAO) with some forty jets during Anatolian Eagle 2019.
The Block 60 Desert Falcon configuration includes the APG-80 agile beam radar, an internalised forward-looking infra-red targeting system, a new cockpit, internal electronic countermeasures, enhanced-performance F110-GE-132 engine and optional conformal fuel tanks.
The 113 Filo, named Ceylan (Gazelle), was formed after the failed Turkish Coup on 15 July 2016. The squadron took over the role of 142 Filo and operates the F-16C/D that can be equipped with the huge DB-110 Recce pod. The F-16s still use the same markings as 142 Filo had painted on their tail.
