The F-16 Fighting Falcon was produced by General Dynamics who became Lockheed who then
merged with Martin Marietta to become Lockheed Martin. The F-16 entered service in January
1979 as a multi-role jet fighter that evolved into an all-weather multi-role aircraft capable of
sustaining 9-g turns. The F-16 is relatively inexpensive to purchase and maintain so the U.S. and
25 other countries added it to their inventory. The Fighting Falcon is referred to by its pilots as
the "Viper" and will remain in USAF service until 2025.
Manufactured as F-16A 78-0320 c/n 6V-13 the aircraft, along with other F-16As were destined for
the Imperial Iranian Air Force. However this agreement was cancelled due to the Iranian
Revolution of 1979. These aircraft were re-allocated to Israel with sixty-seven F-16As being
delivered between 1980 and 1981. 78-0320 was given number 124 and assigned to the IAF 117
"First Jet Squadron" before going to the 140 "Golden Eagle" Squadron and finally the 115 "Flying
Dragon or Red" Squadron. The 115th is the IAF Aggressor Squadron.
