The Indonesian Air Force has received the fifth of six batches of Block-25 F-16s taken from the boneyard at Davis-Monthan AFB and regenerated as part of a Foreign Military Sale of 24 F-16s to Indonesia. The final six aircraft are due to be delivered by the end of 2017.
The four aircraft in the fifth batch or “ferry cell”, comprised three single-seat C models and one two-seat D model.
The work is being performed by the Ogden Air Logistics Complex at Hill AFB, Utah, which has been working on the aircraft since 2013. Each aircraft has received a new set of wings, horizontal stabilizers and landing gear, along with numerous structural and avionics capability enhancements.
The aircraft had logged around 5,000 training and combat hours with the USAF and Air National Guard before being decommissioned and placed in storage.
