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.
F-16C 92-0920 was assigned to the 78th FS/20th FW at Shaw Air Force Base (Sumter) in South Carolina and nicknamed “Babygirl” as well as having “Sumter / Gamecock City” painted just below and behind the cockpit. In 2003 the aircraft was transferred to the 77th FS also at Shaw Air Force Base and later took part in Operation Iraqi Freedom. In 2015 to honor the 50th Anniversary of the first “Wild Weasels” the 77th FS/20th FW decorated their flagship with a paint scheme of a weasel holding a lightning bolt.
