When Romania joined NATO their MiG-21s were running out of serviceability and they wanted a replacement that would correspond to other NATO equipment. Portugal was willing to sell F-16s that were 30 years old but had the mid-life upgrade (MLU) which gave them another 20 years of service. The aircraft consisted of 9 F-16AM and 3 F-16BM. Romanian F-16AM 1601 originally had a U.S serial number of 82-0904 and a Portuguese serial 61-497. These aircraft would equip the Forşele Aeriene Române (FAR) 53rd Squadron.Opening canopy

The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine fighter aircraft built by General Dynamics, that later became Lockheed Martin. Originally designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multi-role aircraft that can perform various kinds of missions. First flown on January 20, 1974, the F-16 entered operational service with the USAF in January of 1979. It has an internal M61 Vulcan 20mm cannon and multiple locations for mounting missiles, bombs and other mission equipment. Although it is no longer being purchased by the USAF, improved versions of the F-16 are still being produced for export customers. Over 4,500 F-16s have been built for the U.S. Air Force and the air forces of twenty-five other nations.
