The Greek Government had considered purchasing the Eurofighter Typhoon but in 2005 opted instead to purchase the F-16 Fighting Falcon. Under the Peace Xenia IV agreement 20 Block 52 F-16Cs and 10 Block 52 F-16Ds would be delivered between 2009 and 2010. F-16C #06-0002 was the second C variant to be delivered to the 336 Squadron “Olympos” of 116 CW, the oldest and most famous squadron in Greece. The 336th began receiving their F-16s in 2014 making them the last HAF squadron to fly the A-7 Corsair.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.
