USAF #80001

This F-16 was the first to roll off the General Dynamics production line at Fort Worth, TX. It was delivered to the USAF in August of 1978 and thus became the very first production F-16 to be delivered worldwide. Initial deliveries went to the 388th TFW at Hill AFB, where initial pilot training on the type was performed.

Callsign of the day

Callsign "Ditch"

As a stud pilot at Columbus I was assigned to be an attaché to a general officer. I was given the keys to his car and drove him around base for close to a week. In my divine wisdom I felt it was necessary to take some fellow studs around the base perimeter road to get some pictures of the T-38's on Live Oak. Long story short we got off the road and tipped the car over in a "Ditch". After calling some buddies we pulled the car over and out. After washing it we realized there was absolutely no damage to the car.
