The Belgian Air Force No. 350 Squadron was formed in Wales as part of the RAF on November 12, 1941. During World War II 350 Squadron flew six variants of the Supermarine Spitfire and took part in the Dieppe Raid. They flew combat patrols over the beaches of Normandy wearing D-Day paint schemes. In 1946 the 350th was no longer part of the RAF and became a Belgian Air Force squadron. F-16 Fighting Falcon FA-57 was selected to wear the special paint scheme as a 350 Squadron tribute to the 75th Anniversary of D-Day 1944.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.
