This jet came to Shaw via a 3 month visit to SP. The airframe was good, but I had no faith in the GE129.... leaked oil everywhere and seemed no matter which engine it had, it broke. This jet had its biggest moment about 1 year later - fresh out of full paint, Shaw was tasked to host Good Morning America - this jet was chosen for the back drop. It came out of paint and sat in a hanger being primped for a week straight. Probably the best photo of a F-16 that I have - so clean!
This jet was one of a handful of block 50s that came from Cannon to Misawa late in 2007 when they shut down the 27 FW. This was the first aircraft that I was DCC of. I cleaned her up real nice and she flew great for the short time I had her.
