Four F-16D Advanced Expected Today
DefenceNet reports that 4 more F-16s were scheduled to be delivered to Araxos Air Force Base today. Specifically the 4 jets are the missionized two-seater D models which are part of the Peace Xenia IV program. The aircraft will be incorporated into 335 Squadron.
Normally the D models should have been some of the first aircraft to be delivered. However, a small problem was found on some of them before delivery and it was decided to delay their delivery by several weeks in order to fix the problem.
