Hi there,

20 Aug 1977 [act] 50751 USAF USAF 6516 TS F-16B

According the information above F-16B 75-0751 was assigned to the 6516th TS in August 1977. But according the Air Force Historical Research Agency the 6516th TS was only activated in March 1989. Was there a different name for the test force in the early F-16 years?

Yes, 4486TS. But we haven't got that unit in our system because so few info is available from it.

Aircraft 75-0751, In the early years when I was assigned to F-16 Test at Edwards Air Force Base the 6510th Test Wing was established and activated as part of a re-organization of units at Edwards by Air Force Systems Command.
