Ramat David Israel (LLRD) 2020

Post by Starman »

The closure of 117 sqn yesterday probably signals the end of F-16C block 30 operations in the Israel Air Force (IAF); 115 sqn hosted a mission leadership course at Ovda last week but lockdown restrictions meant it was not possible to check which aircraft they were using. It is unlikely the IAF would keep just 4 or 5 examples of the subtype in operation, but these are indeed unusual times.
Not all of 117s aircraft took to the skies for the last time yesterday, some are definitely wfu and candidates for the "stoffer & blick" section:-
