Thx Wamovements, can anybody confirm it is repaired after it struck a cable in 2018? That’s the reason it’s not in the list.

CBR for now no signals for their return, it is an integral part of the training of new pilots. So maybe somewhat closer to the out of service date? See below for transition plan of the KLu:

2018 F-16:61 F-35:0+2 in VS
2019 F-16:61 F-35:2+8 in VS
2020 F-16:61 F-35:10+8 in VS
2021 F-16:55 F-35:18+8 in VS (IOC)
2022 F-16:45 F-35:26+8 in VS
2023 F-16:35 F-35:32+5 in VS
2024 F-16:25 F-35:32+5 in VS (FOC)
2025 F-16:0 F-35:32+5 in VS

So sorry, another one: J-632 is in full 312 markings (low viz).

Believe J-616 still has 313 markings, although flying with 322. Not sure though to be honoust.
J-021 is back at Volkel albeit still with 322 markings.
