Hated this jet on my first tour, code 3 all the time for "porpoising" in flight. Supervision had us change the stabs and bearings 3x before specs finally figured out the gyro was toasted. Second tour, I was assigned to this acft, she was a Code 1, NorK hating machine. Her canopy got fucked up and she now has blk25 canopy fresh from AMARC.
