There are no listings of the "A" model being sold to Korea.............only "C" & "D" models.

Maybe the aircraft was donated to the museum from the 35th TFS or another U.S. Air Force unit stationed in Korea ???????
The 35th flew the "A" model in Korea from 81 to 86 according to the database here on this site.

Edpop, I presume that will be the case yes. Most probably an ex-USAF example from the old days. Or simply a mock-up. That's the one million dollar question.

I heard that is a mock-up from Lockheed Martin in 1994.

Hmm.
That blog article is dated 2010/08/15, and is categorised as August Journeys.
I presume that F-16 blue/red/white paint scheme is also dated 2010 August.
