F-16A Block 15
The only F-16 from the Thunderbirds ever to be made combat ready. The Tbirds are required to be able to make their F-16s combat ready within 72 hours. In 1988, this was put to the test. The ground crew pulled it off with time to spare, except for the paint scheme. The jet flew a combat training sortie and afterwards received the nickname 'War Bird'.
