Fighter aircraft & fighter-trainer aircraft: UNDER CONSTRUCTION
From the 1960s onwards the Royal Netherlands Air Force (K.Lu.) had many fighter aircraft in its inventory; Since we refer to the era from the Sixties to the Eighties as “our golden years of spotting”, this gallery will present the KLu fighter-jets and fighter-trainer-jets of that particular time: especially Hunters, NF-5s and Starfighters. The F-16B is also added because we have seen lots of them flying although be it in a later period.
The F-84F Thunderstreak is of course the main feature of our website and special galleries are devoted to our personal favorite type of aircraft.
The Royal Netherlands Air Force acquired thirty NF-5B tandem seat fighter-bomber-trainers , license-built in Canada , with serials K-4001 to K-4030.
No less than 213 F-16 fighter aircraft were delivered to the Royal Netherlands Air Force (K.Lu.) in 1979 and later years , 36 (thirty six) of these being two-seaters of the F-16B version .
