Aviation - Netherlands: books - Koninklijke Luchtmacht (since 1945)

A book on the Royal Netherlands Air Force? Here are books on the history and aircraft of the Koninklijke Luchtmacht (KLu) since 1945.

Goodbye F-16 - Afscheid van een legendarisch gevechtsvliegtuig


In 2024, the Royal Netherlands Air Force bids farewell to the F-16 after more than 40 years of service. Rarely has an aircraft had such a long, versatile, and impressive career as the F-16, evolving from a fighter jet into a multi-role weapons platform.
Deployable anywhere and under the most challenging conditions, this book pays tribute to the aircraft and the people associated with it. It delves into the machine's unique story, covering the design and development of the F-16. The focus then shifts to the individuals who operate, fly, and maintain the aircraft - the fighter squadrons with their tasks, customs, and traditions.
Finally, the book explores the missions, encompassing airspace protection and the global deployment of the aircraft from 1979 to 2023 during various missions over former Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, and the Middle East.

This richly illustrated book is a valuable addition for anyone interested in the history of the F-16 and the Royal Netherlands Air Force.
