What can I say a D model what a (PIG) I accepted it from the 310th at Luke when I lost 309 to the ADS. I knew when I went TDY to accept her at Luke and seen the aircraft jacket file that they were giving us the worse jet they could find to get rid of. This jet had a lot of issues usually fuel or flight control problems.
