History of the Royal Netherlands Air Force

History of the Royal Netherlands Air Force (RNLAF KLU).

On this page we give a overview of some of the types flown by the the Koninklijke Luchtmacht (Royal Netherlands Air Force, or KLu) , in addition we also have some information of types used by the
Dutch Naval Aviation (MLD).

On July 1st 2013 the Royal Netherlands Air Force  celebrated its 100th anniversary. From one (borrowed) airplane in 1913, the Dutch air force has developed into a modern and versatile air arm, with the General Dynamics F-16 as its principal weapon system.

It is not a complete overview of all the type but more a selection off types we have seen during our spotting life or types we are interested in.
