Hey Spooky: This looks an awful lot like the F-16 WSTs I used to work on back in the day (even has what looks like the 3-screen visual display heads). Any chance you'd have an exterior photo of this pit just to confirm? :thanks:

I am well aware of the F-16 training rules and I have an experience. I work almost more than 13 months in Kuwait Air Force by Pakistan Air Force and have 20 years in PAF. This is the work that I really enjoyed during my comfort lifetime. Thanks to Pak Air Force for helping me.
