And the F-35B just completed its first deployment, including first combat strikes:

“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost comes in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

The Belgian airforce have been plugging away at how the F-35 will be more cost effective than maintaining the F-16, but there has been a bit of a scandal over the figures for the maintaining the F-16 as they were found to have been padded out a bit to make the F-35 look a bit better.
Still no "official" government comment on whether Belgium is going to take the F-35, the Euro Fighter, or keep the F-16, but the airforce seem to be pushing the F-35 for all it's worth smile
