UAE Air Force F-16E Fighter Plane

A United Arab Emirates Air Force F-16E Block 60 takes off after taxiing out of the Lockheed Martin plant in Fort Worth, Texas, adjacent to NAS Fort Worth JRB. (Date: February 28, 2007; Author: David Raykovitz.)

The single-seat F-16E and twin-seat F-16F are the latest versions of the F-16. They do not exist in the US Air Force inventory, but they are an export version. The F-16E/F now belongs to a special version developed especially for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Air Force and, hence, they are sometimes unofficially called the Desert Falcon.
