The United States Air Force contractually accepted the first new F-16 aircraft for the Poland Peace Sky program on March 30. The F-16 is developed and produced by Lockheed Martin.

The Poland Peace Sky program is comprised of 48 new F-16 Block 52+ aircraft, including 36 F-16C and 12 F-16D aircraft. The acceptance marks a major milestone for the program as it reflects the completion of the research and development phase for the F-16C, or single-seat model, aircraft. All tooling is complete and full-rate production can now begin.

Contractual aircraft acceptances occur with the signing of the DD-250 (Department of Defense Form 250) by officials of the U.S. Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA), on behalf of the customer nation.

This advanced version of the F-16 Block 52+ includes APG-68 (V) 9 radar, a Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS), an Advanced Integrated Defensive Electronic Warfare System (AIDEWS), Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAMs), color moving maps, Link - 16 and Conformal Fuel Tank (CFT) provisions.
