7,000 Flying Hours
USAF #83165
F-16C Block 25
Was the first F-16 airframe to break 7,000 flight hours and a small commemorative decal was applied to the tail in 2008. This Viper also wears 15 various bomb markings and three gun strafe markings from a prior OIF deployment and hence was called 'Lethal Lady'. It was retired just a few months after reaching the 7,000 flight hours.
