A Dutch Viper blasts away from Kandahar airfield, armed with its standard 20mm Gatling gun, AIM-9 Sidewinders and Guided Bomb Unit (GBU) 12s underneath the wings, the pilot and its aircraft are ready to attack Taliban forces somewhere in Afghanistan. It is bizarre to photograph actual combat missions like this!
Built as an F-16B and assigned USAF serial 81-0884 but taken on charge Jan-1985 by the Netherlands AF as J-884. By May-2000 converted to F-16BM. In Oct-2017 it was delivered to the Jordanian Air Force as 236. Is the backseater photographing us? Note the tinted pilot's cockpit, and the untinted backseater one (good for photography).
The mighty F-104G, this preserved one of the Koninklijke Luchtmacht (Royal Netherlands Air Force) looks as if it can fly away in a few minutes. The Staf was seen on the static display line of the air force days in 2013.
Assigned USAF serial 78-0250 but taken on charge Oct-1981 by the Netherlands AF as J-250, became an instructional airframe in Dec-2000 at the KMSL - Koninklijke Militaire School Luchtmacht at Woensdrecht
