Nose art text reads: "Dedicated to All New Mexican Men & Women Who Have Given Their Lives in Support of OIF / 150th FW, NMANG, Balad AB, Iraq, 2004" and was applied towards the end of the deployment. Nose art was applied by Sean Hampton just prior to returning home. Very similar art was applied to 188th FS F-16C 86-0357 during their 2008 deployment to OIF.

wrong nose art

this art should be on 86-0357 as the "dedicated" nose art should remain on 328
