Special characteristics:
  • Special Colorscheme
'Rausmaus' ventral fin art. The 'Rausmaus' name was applied after this jet had been taken over by mice during the Xmas holidays of 1987. The mice had climbed up the chocks into the wheelbays and eaten their way through wiring insulation deep into the insides of the jet. She was under repairs for almost 9 months as a result.

Collided in a mid-air with a Sea Harrier FA.2 (ZD580/'710') from the Royal Navy off the Dorset coast over the English Channel near Portland. Both aircraft recovered safely at Yeovilton. Damage caused to the F-16 was loss of a part of the port stabiliser, and the Harrier lost its radome. The F-16 was repaired. Both aircraft went to the FSAU at Yeovilton for investigation where the F-16 stayed for a couple weeks. The Royal Navy Sea harrier was at Yeovilton till October 22nd, 1996 before being moved to RAF St Athan were it was in storage.
