Netherlands Three-seater F-16?

Mon May 31, 2004 1:43 am

Hi,

I remember reading something several years ago in Code One about the Royal Netherlands Air Force flying a 3-seat F-16...needless to say I can't find the article but was wondering if anyone could elaborate on it?

Argh...Ive finally found it after digging through my magazine stores...its a blurb in the April 1996 Code One, and it was an April Fools Joke...never noticed that fine print until now...its a pretty well faked photo!

Someday we will need such a plane - a pilot, an embedded journalist, and a lawyer to choose targets  Sad.
