Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) has announced that it will modernize the 17 used F-16s that were previously provided to the Kingdom of Jordan by the U.S. This upgrade program will begin in April 2006 and will involve installation of Falcon-UP, Falcon Star and other Lockheed Martin mid-life upgrade (MLU) modifications of these aircraft. TAI and the Royal Jordanian Air Force have recently signed the final agreements for this program, which will have these F-16s modernized at TAI’s facilities through October 2009, when the last of these upgraded aircraft will be delivered back to the Jordanians.
