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 "Bull"

A Viper driver in my unit was named "Bull" When I asked about the callsign I was told it was because certain parts of his physique resembled a bull's.....I never asked for proof.
