87351 [Detailed history of this F-16]
Unit 555th Fighter Squadron "Triple Nickel" [Unit History]
Period 2009 - 2012
Current: 87351  USAF 555 FS F-16C Block 40 [act]
ADCC on 351 since June 2009. While I've been crewing her she's been to Afghanistan twice and dropped bombs in Operation Odyssey Dawn/ Unified Protector. I deployed with her to Afghanistan where she dropped 33 GBU 38s/54s and fired 11 rockets 5 of which were the first ever fired in combat by an F16 (according to our Fighter Squadron Deputy Commander). She flew watch over the downed chinnook with the SEALs while ceews cleaned up the wreckage. I named her "Lady Luck" and put a stencil on the nose door and put 2 pin-ups on the comm and bit ball doors. I also believe she is the first block 40 to reach 8000 flying ours. She's sitting around 8150 now.
