Indonesian Air Force Receives Final F-16 Fighter Aircraft Delivery

The Indonesian Air Force marked the complete delivery of new fleet of 24 F-16 Fighting Falcon aircraft powered by Pratt & Whitney’s F100 engines, during a ceremony at Iswahyudi Air Force Base on February 28, as part of a grant from the United States.

Significant upgrades to Indonesia’s military infrastructure were carried out, additional bases were stood up with enhanced support capability, and years of training were conducted in support of this milestone. 

The lot of aircraft consists of 19 single-seat F-16Cs and five F-16D two-seaters, which were drawn from former U.S. Air Force and Air National Guard aircraft that had been taken out of service. The jets were regenerated by the U.S. Air Force’s Ogden Air Logistics Complex in Utah and upgraded to the latest aircraft configuration.
