Thank you for the updates of last month.

The month of May was all about putting color on the remaining operational F-16's. During the Tiger Meet in Beja 3 F-16's received 313sq badges (J-003, J-516 and J-646) whereby the latter already lost the stickers after it's return from the deployment. Leeuwarden made serious work for their last month of flying with the F-16 by applying full colour 323sq badge and tailband on the J-144 and giving the J-871 a very nice special tail to commemorate 42 years of F-16 operations from the Frisian air base.

Another F-16 was withdrawn from service as the J-513 made its last flight from Leeuwarden to Volkel on the 15th, what remains are 48 operational airframes.

The J-060 went to Woensdrecht and the J-136 to Charleroi, both for maintenance.

Please find below the May 2021 list with the updates in red:

Thank you all for the updates of last month.

During the month of June Leeuwarden continued applying colour on their remaining F-16's with the TCA badge on the J-201 and 323sq badge on the J-628. On Volkel some of the full colour (Tiger Meet) markings have been removed.

Also in June some 322sq F-16's found their way to Volkel to join 312sq while the J-882 went the other way to accomodate some passenger flights in the last month of F-16 operations on Leeuwarden.

The J-508 returned from SABCA with the transponder of the J-136 and the J-005 went to OGMA, the pilot returned the next day with the J-146 with a new paint job without markings.

It seems J-004 lost its Tucson tailband between Feb and May 2021. It now has toned down markings like J-064.
Also seen active during June were J-010 "148FS", J-064 t/d, J-209 & J-210.
