The four F-16s, serials 6669, 6670, 6679 and 6690, departed in the early and stil dark hours at around 08:00 hrs (LT).
The aircraft will take up the positions left by the F-16As that returned to Taiwan on 13 May 2021. See the Scramble Magazine news item on the return of the first F-16s and the upgrade programme.
