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 86-0246 was completed in 1987 assigned the 23 TFS and then the 149th TFS. In 2007 the F-16 became the property of the 457th “Spads” TFS unit at NAS Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth, Texas. The 457th formed in 1944 so to honor the unit’s 75th Anniversary in 2019 they painted 86-0246 in a Lone Star State scheme with representations of the various aircraft the unit has flown over the 75 years. Due to unforeseen problems it wasn’t available until November 2020.
