The F-16 Fighting Falcon was produced by General Dynamics who became Lockheed who then merged with Martin Marietta to become Lockheed Martin. The F-16 entered service in January 1979 as a multi-role jet fighter that evolved into an all-weather multi-role aircraft capable of sustaining 9-g turns. The F-16 is relatively inexpensive to purchase and maintain so the U.S. and 25 other countries added it to their inventory. The Fighting Falcon is referred to by its pilots as the “Viper” and will remain in USAF service until 2025.

The fourth batch of F-16s delivered to the RNIAF consisted of 4 aircraft, 83-1208 – 83-1211. With the Dutch 83-1211 c/n 6E-30 became J-211 and was assigned to the 315 Squadron in 1986. Over the years this aircraft spent time with numerous squadrons before being sold to the Chilean Air Force (Fuerza Aérea de Chile) in 2007 where it wore 738 assigned to the FACh Grupo 8. In 2006 and 2007 an FMS Program, Peace Amstel I, Chile acquired 11 F-16As and 7 F-16Bs.
