Received report that this aircraft had a nose gear collapse at some point. Viewers comments: "Does anyone remember when this jet skidded in on the radome and centerline tank following a NLG collapse? It looked like somebody cut it with a knife. I can not remember the date but I remember it was my buddies jet and some crew chiefs getting in a little hot water."

Was marked with chalk for 2001 Tiger Meet, a very nice drawing on the tail. Markings were applied because the commanders aircraft with special markings broke. So this aircraft really did not receive a special paint scheme.
