US Air Force - AETC F-16s

83-1118_001.jpg
USAF F-16C block 25 #83-1118 from the 312th TFTS on the Luke AFB ramp. This aircraft carries 'F-16C No.1' on the fuselage sides. It has a right to as it really was the first F-16C built. F-16C #83-1121 also carried this marking but it was the first F-16C ever delivered to an operational unit. When the first Block 25 aircraft were delivered to Luke AFB, amongst much pomp and sircumstance, 83-1118 was still performing flight test duties at Edwards AFB. It was delivered to Luke several months later. [Photo by Kevin Patrick]
