[quote="Mark B."][quote="Bunzing"]Addition:
Noted flying from Leeuwarden on Feb 3/4/5 was J-616, the oldest KLu F-16 still flying. So still active in 2020 (should be retired soon though).[/quote]
Gaat de J-616 FF2020 nog halen? Hoop nog een plaat van deze oudgediende met de F-35 te kunnen maken..
Grtz Mark[/quote]

recently virtual "seen" 25-02-2020 J-616 SAW01: afternoon wave.
No answer to your question. Guess nobody but KLu knows when she will fly her last hour.

Hello,

Vraagje; vliegt de J-641 nog (op Volkel?) en ik las in het blad OL dat er dit jaar weer 5 toestellen buiten dienst worden gesteld.
Enig idee welke toestellen dit zijn of gaan worden?

Dank, gr

sorry, not in English. Hope the question is clear!

And another question; is there a chance that the "AZ" vipers will come to Holland in the future?

From what I have heard (not officially), the AZ Vipers will not return to the Netherlands once they are withdrawn from service (scheduled for 2022).
Seen flying from Tucson on February 25, 2020 were: J-004, -010, -064, -209 and -210 (J-004, -064 and -210 are 2020 updates for the list). Also seen but not flying were J-067 and J-369.

Small update:
J-616 ferried from Leeuwarden to Volkel as PAIN2 with 3 fuel tanks on 11-03-2020. (Thanks Rob L., facebook sgvolkel)
It will fly their final hours at Volkel this year.
J-616 will not be the first to retire if I'm right.

I have heard (so no confirmation on it), that AZ vipers will not come back to the Netherlands and over time will be retiring in the US.
