The General Dynamics / Lockheed Martin F-16 Fighting Falcon is a single-engine supersonic multirole fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft. Over 4,600 aircraft have been built since production was approved in 1976. Although no longer being purchased by the U.S. Air Force, improved versions are being built for export customers. In 1993, General Dynamics sold its aircraft manufacturing business to the Lockheed Corporation, which in turn became part of Lockheed Martin after a 1995 merger with Martin Marietta. Primary Role: Multirole fighter, Air Superiority Fighter.
The New Jersey ANG F-16C 86-0333 of the 119th FS / 177th FW is affectionately referred to as “Triple Cripple” because of the many Code 3 flights. The aircraft was delivered in 1988 with the 80th TFS. In 1999 the aircraft went to the 523rd FS for 2 years and then to 186th FS before returning to the 523 FS. The next move was to the 124th FS in 2007 before finding its final home in 2013 with the 119th FS / 177th FW, New Jersey ANG, Atlantic City Air National Guard Base. Definition of Code 3 - Aircraft or system has major discrepancies in mission essential equipment that may require extensive repair or replacement prior to further mission assignment.
