This is interesting
According to F-16.net, Israel AF block 30, tail number 074 (88-1716) is in storage

Here we see it on a video tittle for 2019


Also note the location of the landing/taxi light on the Main Landing Gear (MLG) like unmodified block 32 and below.

The more I learn about the F-16, the more I realize how little I know.

-- At 0:11 you can see the canopy close but if you look at the back of the canopy you see the actuator still moving. What is doing is rotating the canopy hooks ( I cant remember the proper name)
-- At 0:46 you can see a small section of the Flight control self check. Followed by part of the trim check at 0:56. At 1:01 the flight control check, the horizontal stab go up, down and then kick, roll left, roll right, rudder left and then right. Kick is when you check the Manual Pitch Override switch. You can also hear the engine nozzle moving on another engine on the background ( sec check or EPU check). The whistle sound come from 13th Stage engine bleed air going to the Convergent Exhaust Nozzle Control (CENC). This only happens on PW engines.

-- At 1:30 and at 4:40 you can see the pilot "warming up the flight controls"

--At 4:33, you can see the crew chief making sure the Emergency Power Unit (EPU) is not running. He is looking for hot gases form the EPU exhaust. Then he checks system A hydraulics (fluid level pressurize) There is a chart on the inside of the panel ( that is what he is looking at)

--At 4:50, you can see the Jet Fuel Starter (JFS) shutting down ( you can see the "puff" of smoke from the JFS)

--At 5:11, they are taking the ground safety pins and stowing them on the Left wheel well. There are 2 boxes to store the pins in the jet. There is a hole on the "bulkhead" so the guy on the right wheel well can pass on the safety pins

At 4:14 in the video, look how dirty they get when deploy to the sand box. Also note how many scratches the refueling boom makes.

Do we have people within here who have been or are still working on F-16? In detail at the maintenance of the ACESII seat system?

There are 4 holes for screws for Lifting at the seat. 2 at the knee guards and 2 on top of the headrest. Because it is US product I do not belive that there are metic values for the screws like M12 or M10... do you know what size of thread is needed there and their length? I do not want to test with the wrong hooks...

Cupra,
That is a very specific question. Sorry I never worked on Egress systems.
