So the other day #10903 & #10904 disappeared from our (Vermont ANG) flightline. I assumed that had left over the weekend. Nope! Because we had a DV Jet coming in Monday they were moved to the commerical side of the airport. So early this morning they blast off before 6 am (I love it when they wake up all the haters) only to return with one broke again. Needless to say these two are still stuck on US soil.

Hi,

They returned to Burlington after one of them suffered a slight electrical problem, soundclip: http://www.xs4all.nl/~aerocom/CE2011/CE019.wav

176FS pilots delivered the latest batch of F-16s as indicated by the latest article. From what I've read the 176th is a ANG unit equipped with block 30 airframes. Does there have to be type qualifications between the blocks or can any block 30 pilot just hop into a block 52 and fly it?
