The F-16 began service in January 1979 as a multi-role jet fighter. The Belgian 350 Squadron was formed in Wales as part of the RAF on November 12, 1941. During WWII, this unit flew six variants of the Supermarine Spitfire and flew combat patrols over the beaches of Normandy, while wearing their D-Day paint schemes. In 1946, the 350th was no longer part of the RAF and became a Belgian Air Force squadron. F-16A was chosen to wear the paint scheme as a 350 Squadron tribute to the 75th Anniversary of D-Day.
