In 1986, the USAF established the ADF (Air Defence Fighter) program in the course of which more than 270 F-16A/B Block 15 aircraft were upgraded to Block OCU aircraft and modified for the ANG departments. These planes had improved avionics and could be used with semi-active AIM-7 Sparrow radar-guided air-to-air missiles. The Italian Military Aeronautics Division leased 45 thousand hours of flight-time, between 2003 and 2010, for thirty F-16 Block 15 ADF aircraft upgraded to standard “Falcon Up” aircraft, and four F-16 Block 10 aircraft of converted operation. The work began on 28 June 2003, with the first F-16 landing at the Sicilian base, and on 22 May 2008 the aircraft of the 37th formation cut down 30,000 hours of flight-time.

The supersonic interceptor aircraft F-104 Starfighter was, without doubts, one of the most famous, and long-lasting, aircraft in History. The F-104 entered in service in the late ‘50s and served with USAF for a long time. Later on, it has formed the fighter squadrons of several NATO air forces for more than 40 years. The “Starfighter” was based and developed on an original and unique concept for its time : innovative shape of the plane extremely thin, small, straight  mid-mounted, trapezoidal wings, the stabiliator mounted atop the fin, a powerful and reliable General Electric J-79 turbojet engine able to guarantee outstanding supersonic performances. The F-104G, manufactured under license in several NATO countries, has been built in a huge number of units  and used, thanks to its increased flight range and load capacity, as multi-role fighter-bomber. The F-104S, upgraded in technological features and weapons system, has equipped the Italian Air Force fighter squadrons until the mid-2000s, replaced with the Eurofighter Typhoon,  showing an impressive operational life.
