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 first 50 Lockheed F-16I Sufa (Storm) for the IAF arrived with tail numbers in the 400 series and were assigned to the 119th and 253rd Squadrons. The 52 aircraft of the second wave came with tail numbers in the 800 series. In July 2006 the 107th Squadron (Knights of the Orange Tail) received their first F-16Iís followed by 4 more aircraft two months later. The 107th Squadron was formed in 1953 equipped with Spitfires. The F-16I has CFTs (Conformal Fuel Tanks) and a dorsal spine avionics compartment.
